28 women on how they see themselves when they're drunk. (We guarantee you're on this list).

ALL the wine!

Everybody knows that you have the best ideas when you’re ridiculously drunk. There’s a crucial point, after a few wines, when the confusing fog over your life fades away, and you’re filled an undeniable sense of clarity. You’ve GOT THIS. You understand things now! You are so talented/profound/interesting!

Of course, that blinding moment of brilliance is ever so fleeting, and it’s not long before the crying starts and it’s important you have a nice little nap on the shoulder of whoever you happen to be standing next to.

The other day in the office, we got to talking about the weird things we think about ourselves when we’re drunk. The answers were so varied and hilarious that we decided to reach out to women everywhere and crowdsource some responses.

There were so many good ones we had to include them all.

So here’s what 27 women think when they’re drunk. Don’t try to deny you relate to at least one thing on the list…
