Hangovers Have Met Their Match

Hangovers. Woof. I feel like every time my mom calls me at noon on a Sunday she gets the same response:

Mom: Hi Honey! How are you?
Me: Erghhhhhhhjbakbbllahhh what time is it?
Mom: (Loud sigh) …Melanie Joy. It’s 12 o’clock. It is beautiful outside. Are you seriously still asleep?
Me: No, no I’m fine. I’m awake.
Mom: Really?
Me: No. Call me back on Monday after work.
Click.

She must’ve gotten the hint because this Saturday when I stumbled out of bed at around 1:30 PM after a long night of $2 shots, beer pong and poor choices involving dancing on the bar to “Get Low” by Lil Jon, instead of a typical “U Awake?” text message or overly chipper voicemail as my wake up call, I had a package sitting on my counter. Sweet! I love care packages!

I ripped it open and found a large colorful box with “THE AMAZING BOX O BOX: The World’s Greatest Care Package!” emblazoned on the front. I tore the box open, anticipating cookies, sweaters and the typical stuff from home.

Not so much.
What was it? Detox-O-Box, the ultimate hangover cure. Hilarious, mom.

My irritation and pounding headache were overcome by my curiosity. I opened the box and I felt like I was opening the lost Ark.

The box was chock full of goodies! Here’s the rundown:

* 3 Boozer Hangover Remedy Drinks
* Box-O-Box Barf Bag
* Box-O-Box “Keep Far Away” Door Hanger
* Emergency Chocolate Bar
* Happy Herbert’s Pretzel Sticks
* Yogi Detox Tea
* Dirty Potato Chips
* E-Z Mac’N’Cheese
* Clif Bars
* Ike & Sam’s Kettlecorn
* Liz Lovely Cowgirl Cookies (Vegan! Actually yummy vegan!)

Easy Mac! Ramen! Kettle Corn!  Oh my god, my hangover prayers have been answered. A cure for my pain…in a box…already prepared for me? Thank you, Box-O-Box!

Thankfully I didn’t wake up with that guido in the pink polo I was hitting on at the bar because Box-O-Box clearly states, “Box-O-Box can’t help you if you wake up with a stranger, but we can help you if you wake up with a hangover” and also reminds us that “they never look as good in the morning.”

Too bad! Even though I still don’t have that perfect cure to get rid of Mr. Cigarette Breath, at least I have enough salty junk food and even some specialty hangover energy drinks by the aptly named “Boozer” to get me through the next few months. The kit even has a barf bag! Which might be more convenient to throw in my purse to bring to the bar, but hey, that’s just me.

I GET IT MOM. I promise I’ll call you before noon tomorrow. If there aren’t any drink specials. Mmmm… Emergency Chocolate…
