    Default Drunk, puking SO...UGH!

    Yeah, so the title sort of sums up my "fun" Saturday night. Mr. CC is lying on the bed, drunk and pukey. Yippee! Went to a Microbrew Fest and he, well, overindulged. I did not. I do not deal well with drunk and puking. And, better still, the MIL is here this weekend, too! Yay!

    Sympathy? Ideas on how to make it easier? He has a bucket and newspaper is spread around him. Might I add, he and I were supposed to have a romantic dinner out, too. Those reservations were cancelled. Sigh.

    Sorry, don't have much advice other than give him water and let him sleep it off..I can commiserate though..2 weeks ago me and my DH went out to a club and ended up leaving early because he overindulged, ended up falling and taking out a few bar stools, then proceeded to puke the whole way home, all over the door and side of my Navigator and started yelling like he was possessed when I stopped the car to get him together before walking in the house past our son...dumped him into bed with a bowl and a bottle of water..(and woke his arse up bright and early the next morning to clean my car ).fun times! Good luck..he will feel it in the morning.

    The best part right now is he's asleep. He's a good drunk, very happy and "lovey", but god, I hate drunks! I had maybe two beers in 3.5 hours, lots of tasting that added up to two mugs. He just can't stop once he gets rolling, and he had lots of buddies to help him along.

    On the other hand, it was in the most gorgeous setting (Skamania Lodge) and we got to watch two weddings, too.

    It's always good for a laugh..I know I was laughing at mine (especially while he cleaned my car since I REALLY don't handle puke well..totally causes me to heave)....sucks that it ruined your night though. But like you said, at least you did have a good time earlier, as was I until the whole wiping out of the bar stools bouncer assisting him to the car thing. At least you weren't embarrassed too.
    Hope he is feeling better soon..like I said earlier, lots of water, the biggest reason for the sick is dehydration...oh, and pictures are great for blackmail

    Did you take a video?
    That may be a good way to educate him, when he tries to insist how it doesn't affect him that much, you are exaggerating.

    Please keep a close eye on him tonight... if he's drunk enough that he's vomiting, he could vomit in his sleep and aspriate it.

    Throw a blanket on the lawn. Dump SO onto it. Cover with a tarp (it's going to rain tonight!) Leave him with a big bottle of water. Then you (he!) can clean up with a garden hose.

    I'm here, watching him, as I type. He's on his side, so hopefully if he barfs he won't breathe any in. Thanks for the reminder of that complication! I think he got rid of a lot of the beer in the first couple of go rounds as we drove home.

    Sadly, no video. Of course, if I took one now, it would border on "fat guy porn" as he insisted that he'd be better off naked--so he stripped down. Awesome!

    We are watching my brother's adorable JRT, and she's sitting by him on the bed. I'm sure she'd offer to clean him up, too. Double yuck!

    No advice. The scene reminded me of an incident in my past. I very rarely over-indulged, and never to the point of vomiting. In fact, I was the DD when my husband and I went out. However, one night, we attended a formal (black/tie) function and for reasons I cannot explain, I over-indulged (perhaps nerves, as I felt out-of-my-league). I consumed way too much and although I was not the stumbling, passing out, drunk, I have vague moments of recollection of talking and laughing waaaay too much (why can't alcohol erase the memory of embarrassing moments). I was very thankful the next day, when I awoke with a vice grip on my head, that my husband did not poke fun at me or tease me for being the "life of the party". All I can say is, you cannot make him feel any worse than he already does, so less is more in this situation. Your silence is fuel to his remorse.

    Ya, know let me say this. I also had a bad night a few weeks ago my DH left me alone at an event but made sure I had wine to drink. The wine was served in cups-clearly large cups that did not remotely resemble my own method of portion control. However, it was my fault. The food offered was a bit sketchy so I declined. I had looked forward to this event for 4 months and stupidly drank on an empty stomach. I had to leave early and I was drunk and I felt so terrible.

    I felt so terrible and still do, if he is a good man let it go. I had not been that drunk since highschool and felt terrible since my DH and I never go out. That is my embarrassing story that I still shudder to remember, so please give DH some slack, I know that I needed it and still do.

    I don't plan to do anything in retribution--I've been there, too. (many years ago, and not with him, but still). He's sleeping quietly, but my dear SIL and I have been texting, as my brother is in similar condition, as we were all at the same event. It is there 20th wedding anniversary, and they are staying at the Lodge tonight in celebration...or not! At least he's home, not wandering away from her, falling asleep in the lobby and complaining of "food up his nose"

    Bread and butter in the morning (real butter, not margarine). All the water he can keep down. Bread is easy to puke back up, so just keep putting it in until it stays down. Then graduate to toasted cheese. That's my sure-fire cure, anyhow.

    I can really commiserate though, I worked at a 'fancy' bar in the area and one of the first nights I trained we were forced to try all the microbrews we sold, I think there were 20. I have NEVER been so ill in my life. Eurgh, I feel yucky just thinking about it.

    ETA: Duh, just noticed I'm a couple days late, whoops! Maybe someone else needs the info...
