Alcohol is magical! No, seriously. Different people react differently to alcohol of course - haven’t we seen the most calm people turn wild and the "I’m too cool to cry” person turn emotional under its influence?
Now, let’s look at the five types of drunk buddies we all have.
1. Pushpa, I Hate Tears!
We all have that friend who gets too senti and acts mental after a few drinks. You know for a fact that after four pegs, this friend will cry about anything and everything and if he has no reason to cry, he’ll make you the reason. We all have heard drunken “I love you’s”, haven’t we?
2. Smashed But... “Chadi Nahi”
Beware of that friend who claims he can drink gallons of alcohol and not get drunk. He is the one who often ends up ruining your night because you spend most of your time taking care of this friend.
3. The Philosopher
Yes, this is that friend who doesn’t let you get happy high. He is the one who has a solution for every problem and can easily turn a fun night into a night of gyaan and pravachan.
4. “I’ll be home soon”
We all know that one friend who spends more than half the night on the phone telling his folks that he’ll be home “soon”.
5. Feku Saala
The one who is always trying to show how his life is better than yours!
Caution: The same friend often roams around without a wallet.
