Note to self: when you’ve been out late, drinking for hours on end with friends from out of town and local theatre folks, make sure you drink plenty of water before bed and take some aspirin or Tylenol. It’s a great vaccination against a hangover.
More importantly, if you do fail to drink water and take painkiller before bed, it’s extremely important that you are careful when you wake up at 7am and decide to make up for your oversight.
Carefully read the bottle labels in your medicine drawer, for instance. Tylenol is one thing… Tylenol PM is something entirely different. Taking a couple of Tylenol PM at dawn will make it all too easy to sleep until nearly 11:30am.
Consider yourself warned.
