First hangovers at 14

Sara asked if I'd written my 111 words for today, so I asked her what I should write about, and she said I should write about her first hangover. She had several glasses of pineapple juice with champagne last night, and when she came downstairs this morning, she asked what a hangover is like: she had a headache and found all sounds too loud and light too bright. It reminded me of my first hangover at the same age (14): seven glasses of champagne at a New Year's Eve party in 1978. So on New Year's Day 1979, I went for a run in ice-cold weather to fight off the hangover. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 25 December)
