To all those who believe that you actually need a reason to get drunk, you are wrong. We can use the most mediocre, everyday scenarios as excuses to get drunk. Because getting drunk isn’t just silly shit you pull when you feel like it. It’s a way of life.
Dil khush kar diya. Paaarty: I passed the exam. That girl I have had a crush on for 2 decades now, smiled at me. Friend cleared the first round of some pointless interview. India won. Anything from waking up on time to the lift of the building working, is reason enough.
Yaaaar, I am sad. Let’s drink: That boy I have been stalking discreetly on social media is in fact not single. Let me go drown my superficially broken heart in hard booze.
Salary Day. Peete hai: Sure, even if that means not having enough money to pay your rent and bills, salary day is a customary drinking day. If you don’t go drinking on pay day, do you even get paid?
New place, new drink: Ooh, there’s a new bar down the lane. It looks very, very expensive and their food keeps giving people horrible diarrhoea. I totally want to check it out tonight.
Long time no see, drink now can we?: With this one we know we are pushing it. We haven’t seen or spoken to each other since 8th grade. If there’s no liquor, it’s going to be a sad, never-ending cycle of ‘aur bataa’ till one of you dies. Here, alcohol is a savior.
Basically, at any given point of time: You all know this. We drink when we are sad, happy, excited, anxious, depressed, ecstatic. Anything and everything is better with alcohol.
