Friday last week I went to The Swan as a warm-up for the following day's Tequila Competition. Enjoyed the company of scioptic, Jen, felch_02 and possibly others I can't remember...
Saturday I got up rather late, 15:00, and started preparing for the upcoming competition. After bit of cleaning I dashed to the office to pick up my camera for the evenings drinking. Got to The Swan just in the nick of time as the others had decided that at 18:00 I would lose by default...
So I got to The Swan and met up scioptic, Jen, felch_02, Liz, klex + gf, Wuggy, Liam, antman_manant, nailbug, Helen and a few others I don't know. Dolly Matt showed up fashionably late from his Friday romp in Manchester.
When everyone had finished their drinks we headed off towards Tesco to get the tequila and drinks for the others. Sadly Tesco didn't have the tequila we wanted, but eventually we got some from a Threshers near where I live.
Drinks and food at the ready, the two contestants faced each other, lemon, salt and tequila at the ready. We quickly proceeded to demolish a bottle each, and went in search of some more tequila. Liz, nailbug, Liam and myself went on a bloody trek around Liverpool, but at least we managed to pick up 2 bottles of Smirnoff and some not-too-good tequila.
Liam then had one or two more shots, stood up and said:
I stood for England, I stand for England.
He was then dragged to the bathroom where he could spew in piece.
Various people took turns at helping him and cleaning up after him and the merry-making continued on till about 4am or so. People slowly left and Liam was put on my sofa and lights went out.
