To tell you one story that will be interesting will perhaps make you laugh and be entertained. It happened years ago when I was at least 24 years of age. You see I am a Muslim and I am not allowed to drink, smoke, or any other things forbidden in my religion.
Yet, I did something out of the ordinary. I felt like a kid trying some forbidden fruit and liking it. It turned out that I was invited to a party at my friend's house. Of course there was a lot of drinking involved. I decided to wear red since it is exotic and I wanted to fit in.
So I decided to follow what everyone was doing, such as dancing, laughing and finally something else. That something else made an itch in my spine when my friend said why you don't try some Spanish liquor called Cocito.
I am not sure if it not spelled right actually, but this drink looked sweet and milk fulfilled to my eye. So I said I am sorry I can't try it... Then she laughed and said try a little bit. I took a sip and tried the forbidden drink and savored it.
I drank a little bit and to my utter excitement I was almost in my 4th glass. I had to restrain myself and at the same time feeling dizzy, I got panicked. I was dared to make another drink as my friends came around me and asked me how many drinks I tried?
I replied four. So they walked around me and dared me to drink my 5th and last cup. I was seating and feeling great anticipation and also excitement. Such dare was scary, but I drank the last cup. Everyone laughed and I giggled and was so feeling of dread for I was few hours away to go to my family house and finally they stuffed me up with bread.
They even realized of my strict home life that I had to be able to walk when I reached home. As an end result all that bread help absorb the alcohol and I was drifted away back home to a restful night sleep. It was sure an exciting part of my life.
