To be loaded

To be loaded.

The expression: ‘to be loaded’ means you have a lot of money. For example: I’ve just won the lottery and now I’m loaded.

By the way, do you know who the richest 10 people in Spain are? I reckon they are footballers.

Oh, before I forget, to be loaded, also means to be extremely drunk. In fact, on Saturday night I was loaded.

Drinking, wine, beer, spirits and shots on the same night is not advisable!

Anyone got any good recipes for hangovers?
