The Truth About Drinking And Whistling

The Nightcap


APERITIF:

“My father always used to say that when you die, if you’ve got five real friends, then you’ve had a great life.” – Lee Iacocca



Booze Behaving Badly

I have a friend that insists when a person gets drunk, they are more vulnerable to show you their real side. In other words, whatever behaviors and thoughts a drunk person displays – you should probably take at face value when that animal rears its ugly head.

I have a tendency to believe this.

Now, I’m not saying I don’t have my stupid or embarrassing moments when I’ve knocked one-too-many back, but I’m still a happy drunk. I’m still fundamentally the same person as I am sober – just with less clothes and inhibition.

The only time things would get ugly when I drank was with my ex. A fun night out almost ALWAYS inevitably turn into a heated argument. We decided it was the alcohol that created bad blood between us, so we stopped drinking. Turns out, we were wrong. It actually was just us.

As this article from Vice postulates, if we’re a crappy person when you’ve had cocktails, there is a real possibility that you’re just a crappy people in general.

There are many situations that require a good whistle.

Maybe you want your dog to come back. Maybe you want to solicit and command the attention of a room. Maybe you want to find your friend in a dense crowd. Or, perhaps, you want to make a woman feel both uncomfortable and agitated by cat-calling her from across the street.

There are a plethora of reasons to want to master the art of a good, clean, resonating whistle. However, people rarely connect the lost art of the whistle with an important survival tactic.

Yes, as unlikely as it might sound, mastering whistling is a skill that could potentially save your life if you get stranded somewhere or find yourself in a hairy situation.
