Ralph's Reviews: The Power Hour Hangover

In episode 89 of The Least Dangerous Podcast which took place in San Antonio at the Horrific Film Fest, the Explodeded crew participated in a power hour in which I (Radio Ralph) get a buzz off ONLY one beer. Yes, I understand that public opinion would say is pretty lame. In my defense alcohol is not something I normally am accustomed to.

 
 

For those like me who had no prior knowledge or experience with a power hour I will briefly give an explanation. A power hour I am told is when you take a shot of beer every minute for an hour. Now that that’s out of the way I will begin...

As I entered the horrific film festival I had suspicion that this was not going to be a normal podcast. In fact, this would be epic. The show was pretty intense, the warriors and heroes stopped by to talk with our show which took the show to an elite level. I was set up with two, count them two beers. I only managed to finish one which I struggled to do towards the end. I started the show off fairly well with the beer. Of course, I began sipping, but with continued pressure from the rest of the crew I began attempting to down the beer to finish it to bring the show to a merciful end. The first half of drinking the beer was enjoyable and sort of fun, but by the second half of the beer it became increasingly tough to keep it down and finish it. It sounds weak and it is however, I have only had alcohol twice ever so hopefully I will get a pass. As I inched closer to my last sip of beer I was feeling a little tipsy and failed an in prompt to sobriety test given by Cereal and JC, the hosts. I think I would have been good after the show, but...  I ran into trouble when we had celebratory after show shot of liquor. Which I later learned for first time drinkers or just drinkers in general is a big mistake! The popular saying I’ve been told is "beer before liquor, never been sicker." I would have to agree that this is a true statement, at least for me anyway.

 
 

 

It was apparent to me that as I exited the show I had a hangover. I downed a beer and took a shot of liquor. Ended up going to a burger place, got some food in me, fair to say I did not sober up by then. By the end of the night I hit the bed pretty hard and slept hard. The next day I was struggling not to barf, I didn't, but it was close. About 24 hours of feeling noxious and just horrible I was back to feeling OK. All in all it was an experience to remember. No regrets! Well I regretted the shot of liquor after the beer but for my first hangover, and hopefully my last, it wasn't so bad. At least my last hangover was done on purpose anyway. No Regrets!

My last bit of advice. Everyone has different levels of tolerance for alcohol. Know your limit and most importantly do not drink liquor after beer If you think you cannot handle it. If you do liquor after beer you are in for a rough ride. But hey, if that’s your thing then by all means drink away. I hear liquor before beer is OK, but not after. Definitely not after...
