Beer Pong and Bruises

My baby brother was in town for the weekend, which meant family drinking last night. I've cut way back on my drinking the last few weeks, so my tolerance isn't what it used to be. With that being said, I may or may not have been running around my sister's house naked last night when my brother body slammed me into a pile of leaves. All I know is there were leaves in odd spots this morning and I have a few bruises. I was out of control last night.
My main injury last night came during a game of beer pong. I like to pretend that I'm good at it, but really I suck. I have no depth perception to begin with. Alcohol really doesn't help that any. Basically I end up hoping that my sister in law, who is always on my team, does really well and that I can distract my brother and Andy by dropping my pants right before they throw the ball. I play dirty.
Anyhow, at one point about halfway through the game, and after multiple beers and a shot of jager...you know how drunk I was if I did a shot of jager btw...the ball missed the table and went behind me.
My sister has a light fixture that hangs very low, but the dining room table is always beneath it, so you can't really hit your head on it. Well, we were using said table last night for beer pong, and it was in the middle of the living room. I turned and started to run after the ball, and hit my head on the marble and indescript metal of the light fixture.
Had I not been drinking so much, it probably would have hurt a lot more. The fact remains that I actually started to laugh so hard, that I couldn't stand. Everyone saw it happen, and saw me laying on the floor with blood coming from my head, and got kind of concerned. I assured them I was alright, and after a quick stop in the bathroom to grab some toilet paper to hold against my head, finished the game of beer pong. We lost, but I wasn't going to let something as trivial as a head injury keep me from trying to win. Unfortunatly, I think I may have a concussion right now. I should probably ice it, but I just don't feel like it. It will eventually heal on its own.
