There's a lot of interesting factoids about Japanese drinking parties that I don't have space for in my doofy journal comic, but here's a few more:
- Everybody starts with beer for the first cheers, which sucks because I hate beer and it tastes like peeps.
-It's usually rude to refill your own glass, so everyone does it for each other. But note that your buddies will do it endlessly, so at some point you have to give up emptying your glass or you WILL DIE.
- Luckily these usually happen at an Izakaya and involve lots of delicious food, so be sure to drink on a full stomach FOR YER HEALTH. Stuff that face! You already paid for it!!
And my Japanese friends insist there's no difference between Shitfaced Mary and Sober Mary. That's just the kinda gal I am~?
