While I'm not generally opposed to new experiences, I usually prefer to go into them aware of the fact. Some, on the other hand, I'd be just as happy to skip. My first alcohol-fueled blackout definitely falls into the second group. I'm thinking large doses of doxepin and/or fexofenadine, even when taken many hours before, would seem to counter-indicate heavy drinking. I remember /receiving/ my third drink, but I don't remember finishing it. Or anything else after that, except one (presumably the first) instance of being put in bed. Apparently I missed a lecture about pepper and pepper mills, and I'm quite afraid to learn what I was discussing with my dentist.
Apologies to those obnoxed at. Except about the pepper, because pepper is important.
