Passed out photo stories #5

Ah, daytime drunk. We've all been there ... right? I know I have at least. Though, maybe I haven't reached the same level as Hyuga here.

With the day off and no hobbies like a good Japanese salary-man, Hyuga woke up at his regular time and didn't know what to do with himself. He began to pester his wife who then told him to get out of the house and do something.

He actually thought he was, but I guess she saw it differently.

While wandering the streets, Hyuga passed a liquor store. After glancing between the large bottle of sake and his watch for about twenty minutes, he decided to just go ahead and grab him a few drinks.

Anytime he looks back on this, he will wish he had followed the 'Japanese rule' of no drinking before five p.m.

Without eating anything, Hyuga cracked open the bottle and drank it straight. The sake hit his stomach like a brick to the face, and he felt good. So good, in fact, that he decided to take the local skateboarders up on their offer to 'live again.'

He was a great worker at his company. A good manager even. He considered himself a decent husband. ... But one thing he was not, was a skateboarder. And being drunk didn't help his cause.

He sat his bags down and went to work. Pushing off with one foot on the board and the other off, he struggled to keep his balance. When his vision blurred, and his stomach turned, he began to regret his decision.

With one hard push, Hyuga found his feet no longer touching the skateboard. In fact, the skateboard had already rolled way off, and his legs were waist level. It felt like time had slowed as he watched his body plummet towards the pavement. Thud. He hit and sprawled out. One part drunk, the other knocked-the-fuck-out.

Luck was with him though as the skateboarders were so amused by his fall, that the dragged him over to the flower garden where he had sat his things and rested him there. And here he lies. Still alive, but unable to twitch even his little toe.

Poor, poor Hyuga. He should probably keep his day job.

Thanks for reading,
