Best Cures for a Hangover
Since the petition to declare this Monday a national holiday has yet to pass, it looks like you and everyone else in America is going to be horribly hungover at work after drinking way too much this Super Bowl Sunday. Whether you were partying too hard celebrating the huge defeat of the Broncos or drinking away your sorrows for Peyton Manning, here’s some tips for today.
You may not like it going down right now, but the hair of the dog might be your only savior today. One sip too many and you’re right back to being a little drunk this morning so watch out. But then again if you have a snow day, why not keep drinking?
Drink Even More
Basically any fluid will help – coffee, water, Gatorade, Sprite, anything. Drink, drink, drink.
Eat Greasy Food
Repeat these three words: Bacon. Egg. Cheese. Bacon. Egg. Cheese.
The heavens must be taking pity on any Manning/Broncos fans and luckily it’s snowing a lot right now. You may be blessed with a delayed opening or even a full day off today. Rejoice by cozying up with a Netflix marathon you won’t actually end up watching.
Any Type of Pain Meds
Whatever your go-to is — take it now. Forget the nonsense of how it will only do more damage to your liver. Let’s be honest, the damage today is nothing compared to the damage of yesterday.
For some reason fountain soda seems to have magical powers when you’re hungover. There’s literally nothing better in the world.
This one isn’t actually recommended by me personally because when I’m hungover there’s nothing worse than actually moving. Walking from my couch to the kitchen feels like a marathon. But if you’re up for it, sweat it out. Just remember to drink tons and tons of water. And also don’t mind the looks of disgust at the gym. You stink in the worst way possible. There’s literally booze seeping out of your pores.
