Málaga’s August summer fare is all about painting the town red; yes the main objective is to have fun. It’s a time to meet up with friends, make new friends, dance, eat and obviously drink cartojal, ( well not for me as I can’t stand sweet wine) In addition, it’s the time to laugh your pants off at the effects of alcohol.
There are usually 4 categories of behaviour: (British people excluded as we usually just want to hit other people).
- Drunk person thinks they are invincible and pretends to have the superhuman power of flight
- Drunk person becomes amorous and affectionate. They start to say: ‘I love you’ to everyone and everything, including tables and chairs.
- Drunk person, all of a sudden, falls down and then as quickly falls asleep
- Drunk person becomes philosophical and starts incoherently blabbing on about the meaning of life.
So, when you’ve had a few too many alcoholic drinks, what are you like? Do you get superhuman powers, do you fall in love, fall asleep or do you become a walking, talking book of philosophy? Unfortunately for my friends, I am prone to do all 4 simultaneously!
