Quotes of the Day for 16 February 2004 – Drunkenness
I received a subscriber request very early on Sunday morning for quotes on drunkenness and hangovers, because said reader was suffering the latter. At an earlier age I sometimes indulged to that point myself. There was a time when I had a problem with employees arriving on Mondays in that condition. I trust most of my subscribers have learned not to do that to themselves!
