About three weeks ago, my friend was at a party at the French Embassy, a “techno” party or something, with a few people he was acquaintances with but didn’t know very well. He went outside to smoke a cigarette, came back in, was dancing around/enjoying himself and doesn’t remember much past that. The girls he was with took him home because he was “too drunk,” even though he had only had one or two, and he didn’t wake up until about 3pm the next day. He was in a lot of pain, so went to the hospital… turns out he broke his collar bone. Remembers nothing.
Fast forward to last night, my coworker/friend is at a bar near where we work, in Judiciary Square, having a few glasses of wine with friends. He got up to go to the bathroom, and doesn’t remember anything past that point. He was dead weight on the floor, and it took four people to lift him up and get him out of the bar. He woke up this morning, his face all smashed up and needing stitches. All he knows is that a kickball girl bought him a drink.
Really curious if there are other reports out there!”
I got some cryptic notes a few months ago that this may have happened to a couple of other people. This is terrifying. Has anyone else heard about anything like this?
Watch your drinks and be sure to watch your friends’ backs.
