    I regret nothing.

    No good stories ever start with "I'd just ordered a salad"

      I have some sober incidents in the year I regret, does that mean I should drink more?

            no, my biggest regret was using my dads 15 year old Glenlivet at a party once.
            He gave me a popper talking down. Not for taking his drink but for mixing it with coke.

                  why you reckon the Ale will spoil the flavour of the meat?

                  You know if you spend the weeks up to it sober half a pint of fozzies and you will be her embarrassing drunk uncle.
