Dick Cheese: A Follow Up

  • Great show, not-so-great venue. Standing room only, which wouldn’t have been so bad except it was packed, and you had a lot of pushy people who were constantly going back-and-forth.
  • When you’ve been taking muscle relaxers, Maker’s Mark is not your friend. Even if you stop taking them fully six hours before you start the Maker’s Mark.
  • Maker’s Mark + residual muscle relaxers = portions of night blacked out.
  • Deciding to do an impromptu photo shoot with random hot chicks whom you found in the hotel lobby will not go over well with your wife, particularly not when she’s standing right there. Even if you remember absolutely none of it. Especially when she can pull out the camera and show you the pictures to prove it. (Odds are, she will then make you delete the photos.)
  • You know you’re drunk when: you can barely even hold yourself up over the bathtub to get sick. (Somebody kept moving the damn thing!)
  • Creative use of iPod #37: Blocking out the sound of your husband getting violently ill in the bathroom of your hotel room.
  • Girsch’s Law of Hungover Travel: If you’re hung over on a day when you have to fly, you will get a turbulent flight
  • An airplane lavatory is not a pleasant place to get ill. Rumor has it.
  • It’s good to be back home, and no longer hung over!

    Sounds like something Uncle would do.

    You should have accused her of Photoshopping the images.

    I mean that in the most pleasant way possible. πŸ™‚

  4. tgirsch Says:


    Nope. It’s an old hand-held digital camera, and neither of us had access to a computer. She showed me right there on the camera the next day, before making me delete it. πŸ™‚


    Never claimed to be a rocket scientist…

    You’re never really drunk until you fall in the yard and have to grab two handfuls of grass to keep from falling off.

    The Dean Martin original is still the best. πŸ™‚

  7. DrawingDead Says:

    The father-in-law had a spinal surgery a while back, and created a cocktail that included hydrocodone, methocarbamol (the muscle relaxer commonly known as Robaxin), and Jim Beam.

    I named it “The Jimmy Carbone” and it seemed to work fairly well.

    For the record though, Maker’s Mark goes well with anything (and I’m a Maker’s Mark Ambassador, so I should know).

  8. SayUncle Says:

    I dunno, I like my drinking stories better.

  9. Alcibiades Says:

    You can recover those lost pictures as long as you didn’t take any new ones.

  10. tgirsch Says:

    I wouldn’t call it a “drinking story” so much as a “what not to do” list. πŸ™‚

  11. tgirsch Says:

    Apparently, when I delete it from within the camera, it means business. I tried recovery software, but it didn’t find that file, even though it was literally the last picture I took.

    That’s my boy. Send me the pics of the hot chicks.
