First drunk on Moonshine...
Growing up in the mountains of Tennessee, folks making moonshine out in the woods was just part of life.
I was 16 years old the first time I got drunk on white lightnin.
I had tasted the clear liquid fire before, but had never consumed enough to actually pull a good un!
My friends Dad made shine as a hobby and had a small variety of different flavors.
My friends parents went outta town one weekend, well for us it was the opportunity!
We called some friends and had a small "get together".
When we couldn't find anyone to buy us any beer, we snuck out to the shed and stocked our party with 3 different flavors of shine; peach, grape, and straight ol' whiskey!
We were having so much fun, the liquor went down smoother with every shot!
I do not recommend moonshine shots to anyone, much less a 16 year old girl!!!
After what was a great night of fun I awoke with a pounding headache and an upside down stomach!
Driving home I knew I was in big trouble, so I put together an outlandish, yet maybe believable story!
I told my dad I had eaten some bad Subway and got food poisoning! He looked at me with that "yea right" look that I figure every Dad would have in his situation!!
Then proceeded to tell me that I not only smelled like a brewery, I was also a horrible liar!
After not 1 but 2 days of nausea and the worst headache ever, I recovered from my "great time".
I can't honestly tell ya I never drank shine again but......I can say that I tried to watch how much I consumed in 1 sitting from there on!
Now days, I can still sip on some good homemade whiskey!
The best ever has to be the apple pie shine a good friend of mine made a while back!
Anytime I come across that apple pie, its definitely a good time to pull another one!
