How do you politely exlpain to someone that you were blackout drunk?
“Hi! Are you a’s roommate?”
“Um, yeah. I’m b. We met last night? We rode home in the same car?”
“Oh yeah! Great! Well thanks for having me over.”
Where in that conversation are you supposed to say: “Ohhhhhhhh. yeah, about that. I vaguely remember you now that you’re saying this, but lesbereal. I was super blackout wasted.”
Or how are you supposed to feel about going to a party and getting hammered and running into some you just KNOW you know.
“Hey, I know you!”
“Ohhhh, hey. Yeah I know you too!”
“How did we meet?”
“Geeze, I dunno.”
“I think we were both drunk at that one party?”
“Oh yeah! Well, great to see you again.”
Then, to top it off, you forget about this moment because you were so blackout drunk (again). The only way you know about it is because someone said something about it on the internet the next day.

Or, friends are like – god you were hilarious last night. You’re all like “Yeah! Good times!” and then they have to go and bust out the details with perfect clarity. You’re like – how do they KNOW all this stuff?
“Remember when he fed you like a baby bird?”
“Remember when you squatted outside of the restaurant? The first gay guy that walked past you was like go girl get it! but his friends were so over you and super judgey about it.”
How is it that these people don’t realize you’re blackout wasted? How do you do it? It’s like your brain goes on autopilot and you just act normal. So it’s like – you poison yourself until you act that same as you would without the poison.
How do you explain? You don’t.
