How to Turn Up on a Weeknight and Still Survive Work the Next Day

November 7, 2022

I’ve always wondered how fellow 9-5ers turned up on weeknights. How are you at the club on a Tuesday night? Don’t you have work the next day? I figured something must be giving them the special magic powers to get up to work the next day. After doing some research (LOL, please), I discovered these eight things they do to party on weeknights and still survive work the next day.

Give a sacrifice to the gods

First, you must appease the gods of turn-up so they can go easy on you. Take two boiled eggs, a bottle of whiskey and a tuber of yam to the entrance of Quilox, and leave them there. When you wake up the next day, you won’t even feel like anything happened the night before.

Drink 20k gallons of water 

Okay, exaggerate much? Just drink as much water as you can while you’re partying. It’ll especially help with the hangover. 

Quit your job

Just stop working entirely so you can party every day of the week and have nothing to worry about. Although I’m not sure how you plan to bankroll your partying without a job.

Maybe don’t party on a weeknight

Maybe wait till Friday and Saturday. But this life na one sha; we’re supposed to enjoy it as much as possible, so don’t listen to me.

Sleep and wake up two minutes before work resumes

So you can get in as much sleep as possible. This only works if you work from home sha. Sorry to you if you live in Lagos and have to be at the office.

Call in sick

And use the entire day to recover. I’m not encouraging you to lie o. But this can only work one or two times, so good luck. 

Take *redacted*

 Whatever ‘redacted’ is to you, take it. 

Coffee

Coffee is the ultimate saviour of people’s jobs. A cup of coffee will help you get through the day after doing ijo laba laba and legwork all night. 

But be careful because caffeine addiction is a serious thing.
