She says she wasn’t “that wasted” at dinner because she “only” had four glasses of wine.
Her friend gives her a sympathetic look. “You had a rough weekend,” she says. “It was like the end all, be all for you two.”
Perhaps that went too far, so the friend corrects. “I mean, it doesn’t have to be the end all for you and him, but it probably was the be all for you guys.”
“I just wish I could remember everything I said,” she responds. “Those cocktails after dinner were strong.”
And this is the exact moment when the conversation turns into a lengthy discussion about how it was that the first woman’s boyfriend — perhaps ex boyfriend now — got those tampons “so far up his nose” at their best friend’s wedding.
