As I mentioned in my last post, I was at bachelorette party last weekend, and my good friend Katie brought photo albums from college. Although they were very entertaining, they were also a shocking reminder of how bloated I was during my Drunk Lisa days.
I am tall and slim, and although my wait has fluctuated by a few pounds here and there, I’ve always looked pretty much the same-or so I thought. The thing that was most noticeable in the pictures from college was how bloated my face was from drinking. I always thought I looked pretty damn good in college, and never had a problem meeting guys, but looking back it was shocking.
In almost all of the pictures, my Drunk Lisa eyes were in full effect. Drunk Lisa eyes were one of the first signs of my inebriation. Basically my eyes would become glassy, and wonder. Next was usually the slurring of words, which I always tried to impossibly control. And then, there were be the growing of my extremities. I’m tall – about 5’9″ and my friends used to always say that once I was drunk my arms and legs would grow even longer and I would flail them around. This made it extremely hard for people to help me walk as I never could do so on my own once I was drunk. My ex-boyfriend actually compared me to one of the inflatable air dancers you see outside of car dealerships. Although this did annoy me, he was spot on.
It was fun reminiscing and looking through the photos last weekend, but it was also a great reminder of what an ass I made of myself in college, and how much better I not only look, but also feel being sober.
