Tired & Emotional

I finished SAMS shift at 1am and was happily driving through the village of Dyserth home when a figure in black staggered into the road in front of me , tottered in front of the Spar shop and bounced over the litter bin which looked like R2D2 before landing legs akimbo outside Morgan's Pharmacy.
I stopped and half got out of the car before the figure waved me away
" I'm alright I'm just PISHED !" He called out and in way of an explanation he added " It's my birthday!"
" How old are you? " I asked as he rolled on the floor
" 66! " He slurred
There's no fool like an old fool!

  2. Thank goodness he didn't fall into the roadway and get under your wheels. Good of you to stop and check on him. Sixty-six! I wonder what his liver looks like!

  7. In my experience, if you admit that you're 'pished' then you're not THAT 'pished'. It's when others call you 'pished' and you get angry at the suggestion then, boy, you really ARE 'pished'.

  8. The heading doesn't fit the post. I was expecting to read an outpouring of emotions from you. At least it explains why you left a comment on my blog at the time you did. I wondered why you were awake at that time of the night.

    1. I think it fits oerfectly well.
      Isnt " tired and emotional" a euphemism for being pissed?

    2. Too pissed to have ever heard it I suppose.

    3. In fact, thinking about it, I have never mixed in circles where euphemisms for being pissed were used.

    5. Here it can mean either angry or drunk. I was puzzled by the "tired and emotional" title, too! So my explanation was that you were tired from your volunteer shift and emotional because you nearly hit the man ...

  9. Absolutely. Somehow I expect someone of that age to know better.

  10. I can't remember the last time I was seriously drunk or hungover. A glass or two of wine is more than enough for me, even on my birthday. If the tottering 66 year old carries on like that, he might not reach 67....

  11. Had The Prof forewarned you he was going to have a drinking session in Dyserth?

  16. In the States being "pissed" usually means you are really mad about something and when we lived in Sydney my daughter was at a party and called home to say she was going to be home late. She told her Aussie friends I was really pissed and they all suggested she go to Al anon! I was Mad not Drunk! Reputation ruined !
