Twelve - Hangover

Yesterday I met my friend Mario for some food, meant to be a lightweight thing because I was oncall. We went to a Japanese place close to my apartment (we had 3 small bottles of sake), and then after I suggested we passed by a pub called Owl Tree. When we were almost there, just across the street, I gave Mario this very nice idea, when I saw we were standing in front of a liquor shop: "Why don't we buy something here, and go drink in my apartment? This way, if I get paged, I will be close to my computer"

We bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from 1999. Very good wine after some air. Once the bottle was over, Mario suggested we went back to the liquor shop and bought another one. And I agreed. Mistake. We had the whole second bottle, and at some moment, while he went to the toilet, I went to bed and passed out.

Making long story short: I had the worse hangover ever this morning. Even water wouldn't hold in my stomach. I was feeling *awful*. I had planned to eat in a Brazilian Steak house with some friends, so I tried to stick to the plan. Well, I couldn't eat any meat. I ate only salad, some feijoada, and that was it. Like a torture session, meat would come by, smelling delicious and looking awesome, and I would not be able to eat it.

Anyway, in the restaurant, this song played, and the last two verses made me want to post it as today's song. Because it says "excuse my euphoria, its just that I've learned what happiness is". The apology for the euphoria made me think about this "one music per day" project and how cheesy people might think it is. Anyway, not that I care that much. Excuse my euphoria. I'm happy.

Lágrimas, tormentos
Quantas desilusões
Foram tantos sofrimentos e decepções
Mas um dia o destino a tudo modificou

Minhas lágrimas secaram
Meus tormentos terminaram
Foi uma nuvem que passou

Minhas lágrimas secaram
Meus tormentos terminaram
Foi uma nuvem que passou

E hoje a minha vida é um carrossel de alegrias
E como se não bastasse, estou amando de verdade

Me perdoa se eu me excedo em minha euforia
Mas é que agora sei o que é felicidade
Me perdoa se eu me excedo em minha euforia
Mas é que agora sei o que é felicidade
