How to avoid hangovers.

Simple really. Go out, have some rum, some wine, mussels, seabream, crushed potoato (wanky restuarant, it was mash) Bailey's coffee, walk, meet friends, more rum and -somewhat inexplicably-two pints of carlsberg. Get cab home, drink water, feel funny, go to bathroom and vomit compiously. Now not a mini vom either, a full force gale spray of a puke. See mussels again. Wave at them if you wish.
And voila, no hangover the next day. Nada, zip, feeling positively dandy. About to go for a scamper in the park.
Huzzahs all round then!
Alcohol in, alcohol out.
It astounds me how often I come up with simple and effective remedies to day to day problems.

Has to have been the crushed potato. Good old fashioned mash never made anyone sick. But sure, if it prevents hangovers, it's going on my menu.

I'm fairly sure it was the mussels. Thank God my body has an excellent filter for this kind of thing, it refuses to digest anything remotely dodgy and they looked pretty whole and undigested when I met them the second time.
Crushed potato, honest to god, I looked at my plate in astonishment. 'It's mash!' I said to the Paramour. Crushed my arse.
Our waiter's accent was hilarious too. He spoke like Pepe le Pew but I'm willing to bet a pair of Manolos he has a big bloody Irish harp on his passport, sorry wait, for 'im it wud haff beenz a 'arp.
The place was jamo with bloody Trannistons too!
Wanky restaurants. I'm against them!

It's beautiful in its elegant simplicity.

I love mash, me.

"Crushed potato." That's just stupid.

Glad you are feeling fine. Life's too short for hangovers.

Thank you Sassy, you're absolutely right about the spuds too. According to French Gay it's all the rage now. They 'crush' the potato with a fork. Damned stupid it you ask me, especially when you consider there is a perfectly good tool for the job, like a a masher.
I love mash too Sam, nicely boiled Kerr's Pinks, add lashing of butter and milk and white pepper and smoosh until almost fluffy...
Jesus I'm starving.

Mussels was it. Nothing at all to do with the Rum and Cokes and Carlsberg :)

For many years now I've managed to avoid hangovers by carefully regulating my alcohol intake.

But then I'm weird like that.

And look, you managed to avoid all those calories, too!

You may be on to something here.
