But getting back to the "hair of the dog," some people think that if you get drunk on, like, vodka, then you can cure your hangover by drinking some more vodka. Maybe these people are right, but maybe not. At least this is not the kind of cure that a doctor would tell them to use.
The ancient Romans used to cure their hangovers by eating deep-fried canaries. This sounds incredibly tasty to me, so I am going to ask Mom to make us some. The Greeks used to eat sheep lungs to cure hangovers. And to prevent them, they ate boiled cabbage, which does not sound nearly as good.
But if you want my opinion, I think the best thing to do is to not get a hangover in the first place, and you can do this by not drinking a whole lot. Of course, this is easy for me to say since I am too young to drink anyway.
