Hangovers happen.

Vodka, bourbon, and plain, old-fashioned beer have caused me many a headache in my past.

But that’s the price we pay, right?

The high is worth it, right?

Well, most of the time, anyway – even if the highest highs lead to the lowest lows.

But sometimes, those bastards bring their friend, who is worse than any of them combined: guilt.

That’s when it’s not worth it.

That’s when the nausea hits hardest for me.

I can usually brush it off, but sometimes it clings to me like smoke in my hair, and I can’t escape it.

This is one of those times.

Actual puking is rare for me, but I’ve already vomited everything I could today.

And I still want to heave.

The EMT asks about my symptoms and I answer using a tequila analogy, because one night on a public bathroom floor years ago made it my go-to villain, but compared to this, recovering from that was child’s play.

Yeah, that was nothing.

I’ve never crashed this hard in my life.

But I guess that makes sense.

Because who knows what she gave me.

And because when it comes to both ecstasy and guilt, nothing compares to Olivia.
