Liar Liar Pants On Fire

If you come to the ER weighing 82 pounds at the age of 48, skin the color of freshly bloomed daffodils, vomiting blood, have a heart rate of 140, a blood pressure of 138/79, and have tremors so bad that you can't hold a cup without dropping it - I will not believe you when you tell me you do not drink alcohol on a regular basis. I will prove you wrong when the labs come back and your ETOH level is .280.

Don't go there.

Truth - it's a good thing.
