2 glasses of wine. That’s all it took for total blackout.
Let’s rewind to a few weeks ago, on our short flight to Oahu. The beverage cart had just passed, leaving 2 plastic glasses of merlot behind. It was lunch time, the start of our long weekend, and I was ready to driiink.
After poking around a miserable plastic tray of pasta primavera, I began happily sipping on the first glass of merlot…then the second. Jordan’s glass disappeared in an instant. I had True Blood merlot mouth in the middle of the flight, and I felt no shame.
Twenty minutes passed, and I began to feel lightheaded and nauseous. I knew I had to get to the bathroom fast. Jordan led me down the aisle, but after a few steps…I realized I couldn’t make it. BOOM — I blacked out.
I woke up in the middle of the aisle, seeing Jordan full of worry and bewilderment, along with a few other concerned faces in the surrounding aisles. I overheard the stewardess saying “slowly…take your time” as Jordan helped me off the ground.
I eventually made it to the bathroom, where I threw up both glasses of wine along with some sad niblets of food.
Moral of the story: At an altitude of 40,000 feet, weighing less than 115 lbs, barely touching the in-flight meal…2 glasses of cheap red wine can fuck a girl up.
