Booze ain't for everyone

Today, I'm such a lightweight that after a single can of 3.2% alcohol, I was sobbing uncontrollably over the death of a fictional character, who wasn't even permanently dead. FML
I agree, your life sucks 728
You deserved it 392

fishyrael tells us more.

OP here! I definitely found this funny pretty much as soon as I stopped crying, lol. I don't really drink both from low tolerance and disliking the taste, but I keep a box of Seagrams around for social drinking only since it's not very hard and you can't really taste the alcohol in it. It was a D&D session and another player's character died heroically trying to protect all of our characters and had a huge dramatic sendoff. After our characters escaped and everything died down, we agreed to go back and recover his body, which we're keeping on ice to resurrect as soon as we're able. My character was very close to him so I had roleplayed with him a lot. When the session ended with the character still dead, we all decided to raise a drink to him and I broke out one of the Seagrams in his honor. I was fine. The DM was fine. The player with the dead character was fine. We all knew we'd get him back in a week or two. But man...I finished that can and some kind of floodgate opened. We were just talking about the session and how cool everything was and I just started sobbing over it until I had to leave the call. As soon as I sobered up I was cracking jokes about it, but I thought the sheer extent to how intensely drunk I got off so little was frankly depressing, especially when the rest of the group was doing rum and vodka in his name!

Was Jesus the character in question perchance? Cause a lot of people wouldn’t blame you in that case, you could call it “being moved by the Holy Spirit through the medium of beer” or something.

Was it Krillin?

Better than me, I take a sip of 3.2% and I'm basically black out drunk for the rest of the day.

I’m also a lightweight. I feel drunk after 2 pints

On the plus side, you're a cheap date.

"Being moved by the Holy Spirit through the medium of kvas" more like. On the other hand, Jesus changed water into wine, so that could explain how you got drunk over one can of Bud Extra-Lite.

I feel you there, I had half a bottle of stout the other night and passed out only to wake up feeling like I'd cained it all night. This isn't anything to feel bad about its just your body can't tolerate alcahol. This isn't anything to worry about.

Was it Kenny? My eleven year old was crying over that episode the other day. I told her it wasn't like he was ever dead in her life time.

"that" episode?

See, when it's D&D that all makes sense. Way to go on making such story you can get so involved in!

aside from having to be careful where you drink I'd say props. sounds like you can save a fortune on alcohol.

I'm lightweight too haha! I'm a mom.of 4 so I just dont drink very much, just maybe one when I know I dont have to get up and get everyone to school in the mornings, so if I were to have 2 or 3 drinks then I'd be out for the rest of the night lol!

You were probably just sad you had to drink beer from a can
