A MAN who is too young to know what a bad hangover actually feels like thinks he is experiencing one.
Joshua Hudson, aged 20, has woken up from a night of binge-drinking wine, beer and mixed spirits with a headache, yet is acting as if he is living through the room-spinning nausea of the proper hangovers which real adults endure.
He said: “Christ. What time did I get to bed? I can’t have had more than eight hours undisturbed sleep. And I feel a bit sick. Hangovers don’t come much worse than this.
“Hopefully the full English breakfast my mum’s cooking me will soak up some of the damage, although I reckon it’ll be at least a couple of hours until I’m feeling 100 per cent like I can handle a pint again. Curse this apocalyptic hangover.
“Now I know why hungover people say they’re ‘never drinking again’ and wear sunglasses to block out dazzling lights. It’s because, like me, they have a bit of a dicky tummy and have to lie in bed watching Squid Game on their phones until mid-afternoon.”
Joshua’s dad Tom, aged 52, added: “Proper hangovers don’t start to kick in until your thirties. When Josh goes through one, he’ll finally be a man. A broken, retching shell of a man.”
