A local man is hoping that having a healthy salad for his lunch will make up for the 30 cans of beer he drank at the weekend. 54 year-old Kevin James admits he’s still feeling badly hungover but says he’s confident that eating a plate of lettuce will cancel out all the horrific things he did to his body over the weekend.
“This will sort me out.” he told us. “I kinda did the dog on it from Friday evening until late last night. I reckon I had about 30 cans and I tend to chain smoke when I’m drinking too so that’s not great I suppose. But I’m one of those health conscious types who likes to look after himself so I’m having a green salad today. You can’t be too careful at my age you know. Those heart palpitations and terrible chest pains I’ve been getting lately won’t go away by themselves.”
Kevin was having lunch with his wife Deirdre at home and told us he couldn’t believe she was tucking into a chicken fillet roll.
“I mean for God’s sake, you have to think of your health.” he said tutting. “Some people just don’t stop and think about what they’re doing to their bodies. She might as well get a shovel now and start digging her own grave.”
Kevin told us he expects to be fully recovered in a day or two and ready to let rip all over again.
