I have been drunk literally and precisely once in my 57 years on this earth, and that was by accident. I spent an evening with a group of friends and
we were sampling various wines. They were good wines and I drank no more than my normal limit with a meal or on a full stomach, but I forgot that I
had not eaten that day. I was working in remodeling/construction at the time and it had been too hot to eat a full meal at lunch, so I was drinking on
an empty stomach. I know better, but just honestly forgot.
Sorry, but your story doesn't hold water (no pun intended).
You have been 'sampling wines' a lot in your life, and you have a 'limit' (that you know HOW, exactly?), and you are implying it's a common occurrence
for you to do this kind of stuff (drinking alcohol), but that usually you do it after eating.
Even if you don't feel drunk, you can still be drunk. You can't basically have alcohol in your body without being drunk to SOME degree.
How can you forget you are hungry? You can't have empty stomach without feeling hungry. You can't just forget a thing like that.
Also, how can you forget it only once? Are you saying you have SO meticulous that you ALWAYS use the same routine, always eat before drinking alcohol,
but somehow you suddenly forgot? Then you went back to being meticulous? How does this kind of one-time-lapse happen? People that are that meticulous,
don't just suddenly lapse once and then never again.
Your story would be more believable if you -sometimes- forgot, but just ONCE? This would require quite a lot of elaboration or explanation to be
believable, if it can ever even be made believable.
Suddenly a train came out of nowhere and ran me over! Nobody got the number, though.
You survived a collision with a train? How fast was the train going, and how come you didn't AT LEAST wake up in a hospital? Did you suffer fractures,
What do you mean that nobody got the number? Do trains have visible numbers you can 'get'? Can't you just look at the schedule and knowing the time
and location of the impact, be able to figure out which train it was, and who was driving it?
How can a train come out of NOWHERE? They're usually on RAILS, so their route is pretty darn predictable. Were you standing on rails, or .. this makes
What would getting the number achieve anyway?
Trains don't also come 'suddenly' - they make a lot of NOISE, they have whistles and bells, and very bright lights. There's usually a warning bell
system of some kind, road is closed off for the duration - HOW did you end up in a situation where none of this existed? You can spot a train
literally miles away from the rail vibrations alone.
A train is not a stealthy ninja that can sneak up on you - it's a LOUD MACHINE that weighs a ridiculous amount of tons, and usually travels very fast,
too. HOW DOES THAT EQUAL "SUDDENLY"??!
Sorry, but your story REALLY doesn't hold water whatsoever. Try again.
