Actuality: the party didn't break up until 0045.  Then
we had to get up at the crack of dawn to drive Robert to
the airport in SF.  {8^D

Harvey, it wasn't that you were drinking any more than
anyone else.  Its just that the same amount of alcohol
found in you so much less body mass to intoxicate.  Perfectly
good alcohol molecules were left idly standing by searching 
for sober cells to intoxify.  

My reasoning is that alcohol does not actually affect bone 
matter (these being the more serious and somber cells, except
those in the funny bone) so the critical number is not so much 
body *mass* as it is the nonbone mass.  In my case and yours 
Harvey, that nonbone mass is small indeed, consequently a relatively
small amount of alcohol results in a great deal of delightful 
silliness, thus saving money.  

I followed that line of reasoning and learned to generate
delightful silliness with no alcohol at all, saving still
more money.  Also, I fear that devouring excessive amounts 
of alcohol could have a detrimental effect on my brain, which
is undesireable, this being my second favorite organ.
