I completed the '12 x 12' challenge this Saturday just past - a whole day of drinking, noon to midnight, in the cosy confines of the 12 Square Metres bar.
I had feared it was going to be a day of pathetically solo drinking, but..... well, several friends - and friends of friends - looked in for spells here and there; so, after mid-afternoon, I was never completely unaccompanied, and mostly had quite a good gaggle of supporters around me to encourage my over-indulgence. In total, I think, there were something like 15 or 16 other people who put in an appearance - comparable to the notorious NLG bar crawl of a few weeks back.
It was a splendid day - although I have been uncomfortably AWARE of my liver ever since.
Perhaps the hourly - or half-hourly - shots in the later stages of the evening were not such a good idea.
Perhaps going to another bar afterwards and staying up half the night was not such a good idea (as with the NLG crawl, it ended up being about 16 hours of drinking rather than just 12!).
Time for a little spell of abstinence again soon, I think. Soon..... but not quite yet.
I have other plans in mind for this week...... After all, what is life without some goals & objectives??
