What do you need a liver for anyway?

So in keeping with my New Year's resolution, myself and a few of my buddies at the fire department have decided to go to a local night spot between Athens and Princeton next Friday to see how long it will take to destroy our livers. These guys are in their twenties... And it's been well over two years since I've done any serious drinking... The last six-pack I bought for myself lasted me three months... But I'm game!
The last time I was seriously drunk was about four years ago... I had a army buddy at my house for the weekend when I still lived in Arizona...
Word of advice: Never try to drink an Australian under the table. It won't happen.
Anyway, we decided to head down to It's Five O'Clock Somewhere and see what trouble we can get into. It'll be fun. I do have the feeling though it's going to be one of those nights where the next day I'll wake up with my liver laying next to me smoking a cigarette and drinking a cup of coffee...
I also have a comp from the MGM in Las Vegas good for three days, two nights, all inclusive except the airfare good until June so a bunch of us talked about heading out west for a few days to party. One of the guys on the FD is 22 and going through the paramedic course... He's never been out of West Virginia...
And a virgin...
I'm going to have some real fun in Vegas!
So what's a little bit of degenerative liver disease when you're having such a good time?

Doesn't it do us all some good every once in awhile to do some damage to our livers? :)

(The fact that it is so hard to keep the faith is what faith is all about, right? To believe in that which we cannot touch or see. Keep on keeping on and good things WILL happen. I have faith. :))

Yes, it's definitely fun to let your hair down once in a while. I'm still in shock about the 22 year old virgin though! :D

Oh, my ... a 22 year-old country-boy virgin and you're taking him to Sin City for a weekend? Boy-howdy, is he in for a surprise. Ranches in Nevada are much, much different than ranches elsewhere.

Sounds like a hoot! You know we want to hear ALL about it as soon as you guys get back.

cmk: True... I've been a good boy for far too long!

Lisa: I haven't puked on my shoes in a long, long time...

Sherri: I need to have fun for myself for once. I'm so sick of thinking of others and getting shit on. This is going to be MY year!

Kev: Oh, and it's going to be soooo much fun!

Okie: There WILL be photographic evidence... Bwahahaahaha!!!!!!

Do they still have 22y.o. virgins? I guess his sisters can run real fast huh? (sorry)
I once saw a lady(?) in Sydney wearing a T-shirt that read "The liver is evil and must be punished."
Won't get an argument from me.

Welcome back Dirk! I was beginning to think an Emu got to you...

I like the T-Shirt...

I'ts a new motto I'm going to start living!
