Six ways to justify getting drunk even though it’s Tuesday

Six ways to justify getting drunk even though it’s Tuesday

IT’S a rainy Tuesday in the second week of March and Britain is lurching into crisis. But if you need other reasons to hit the drink tonight, try these: 

You can

That’s right. You’re a grown-up, so if you want to knock back 12 cans of Strongbow and pass out on the couch that’s up to you. Make sure it doesn’t become a habit or that couch could turn into a park bench and that Strongbow could turn into, well, it’d still be Strongbow but either way.

It’s nearly the weekend

If Thursday is the new Friday then Wednesday is the new Thursday so Tuesday is kind of the new Saturday night. That makes sense, or it will after a few drinks.

The pub will be empty

You’ll have the whole pub to yourself! No waiting to get served, no waiting to use the toilet, no-one to talk to and no atmosphere. You’d be crazy not to.

You’ve been on time for work twice in a row

Looks like you’ll be a CEO soon, so celebrate while you’ve still got the free time. Let loose with a bottle of gin then arrive late and hungover before forgetting your password and throwing up in the disabled loo.

Can you really be drunk off eight cans of Stella?

Don’t go driving a car or operating any heavy machinery or anything but it’s only eight cans of a relatively weak lager. It just takes the edge off the week, that’s all.

It’ll be a laugh

Oh come on, don’t be so boring. It’ll be a laugh to get blind drunk with three days of the week left to go. Get out of your comfort zone.
