Learnt when I was 16 that there's nothing good comes from drinking anything ending with "Jack". Did the Black jack, but I could not remember what happened with the Loganberry Jack.
Me and buddy rented a room to party in, we were late for the Monday morning work.
Not sure what happened blacked out for 2 days, it took a months wages to pay back my buddy for half of the party damage.
He doesn't remember either, went through 4 gallons though over the weekend.
My gramps would pour himself a shot of whiskey and pull three shelled peanuts from the bowl, light a cigar that would last him all week, and that was it…”everything in moderation”, he’d always say. He lived to the ripe old age of 91 until he passed away due to an auto accident.Ah .. No pity .. In addition to my father, I have seen alcohol ruin a lot of peoples lives, and kill a few, too. No thanks.

MD 20 20 ! ! !Downed a half(?) bottle of ultra tasty Mad Dog 2020 as an alcoholic virgin in the early '70's in high school. My sister covered for me when our mother got worried about what I was "on" 😵💫and said, "Don't worry he'll be just fine in the morning!" Thanks Sis. No MD2020 since then.
If you ain,t CAV, you ain,t s--t! Bumper sticker on my buddies truck.! 1st Air Cav,Vietnam. Him,not me!Red wine.
As a brand new 2LT, I was assigned to the 5th cavalry. On Friday nights the officer’s club featured beef and burgundy. On this particular Friday, the Brigade hosted an officers call and most all the officers in the Brigade were there.,..especially all the LTs. The bright idea among all us LTs was to have a competition. Whoever could down the most burgundy wouldn’t have to pull staff duty for the coming year! All the losing competitors would pull it for him.
Well, any cavalryman worth his spurs couldn’t let that challenge go unanswered.
I won….but in truth, I lost. I was never so sick in my life!!!🤢. That was in 1975 and I’ve yet to be able to pass a glass of red wine close to my lips. A good lesson learned by a stupidly courageous new 2LT cav guy! 😁
