Have you ever heard of Tequila curing sore throats?? Me neither, until I met someone who told me it does wonders.
The night before my FIRST final exam at university, I came down with an excruciating sore throat which left me incapable of focusing on studying for my English final. The night before, one of my friends told me that if you took shots of tequila that it would cure your sore throat. After hearing this, it sounded too good to be true; however, after surfing the web, I found that there are some stories claiming that Tequila really does have this function (click here to read about one of these stories). I figured I had nothing to lose, and decided to give it a shot! (no pun intended).
A few of my friends had come over to study together and I explained to them my plan of taking Tequila shots to cure my sore throat. They howled in laughter at me and thought I was insane and doing something really stupid (which i probably was).
I ran to my room and took a shot of tequila and waited…nothing happened. My throat was still sore. I then figured, well, it most likely was not going to work on the first shot, so I took another one. A few minutes passed and my throat still didn’t feel any better.
“THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM,” or so I thought. After my third shot of Tequila, lemme tell ya, the only thing I was feeling was feeling a little buzzed in my head. I couldn’t even tell if the pain in my throat was still there. Nonetheless, I figured one more shot wasn’t going to hurt my throat. So yep, I had four shots the night before my English final and ended up doing zero studying.
The next day, I woke up OVERJOYED with happiness. The pain in my throat was gone and I had never felt fresher. I went into my exam, and OH MAN, the Tequila must have had some other magical properties because I finished that course with an A.
