one over the eight

tags: ,

Bar‘one over the eight’ is defined by a UK phrases website as ‘the drink that renders you drunk’.

My one over the eight is actually number 3 with weak beer   (under 4.5% alc.)   with Liquor my one over the eight is drink number 2.

These non-trivial life-style details have caused the normally supportive Excel to get a mardy on because 9 does not equal 2 or 3.

    My one of the eight was about three-quarters of the way down a bottle of vodka, which is why I had to stop drinking.

    Mine has changed as I aged. When I was in school, it was something over a pitcher of decent dark beer, as I used to have a pitcher often for lunch without noticing any effects. Now that I’m much older and hardly drink at all, one drink is usually enough. Certainly, I can’t drink a firkin, which is my word today.
