I was hungover during the interview!

The night before my big interview I was tricked into getting totally wasted. To make a long story short, I ended up blacking out until the next morning when I had about 30 minutes before my interview. Luckily I live 10 minutes away.
As soon as I arrived, I threw up on the bushes next to the front entrance of the building. A little bit got on my shoes and shirt. But I was determined...
I ended up shaking hands with the manager with the same hand I used to wipe the puke off my face. I nearly tripped walking up the stairs to his office because I could barely feel my legs. I had water spots on my shirt from trying to wash the puke from my sleeve. And I just noticed I wasn't wearing a belt and that both my hands were stamped...I guess we went to a few clubs last night.
Severely dehydrated and with the meanest pulsating headache of all time, I stumble through the interview. When asked what my weaknesses are, I said alcohol and women! LOL!!! At this point I really didn't give a damn if I got the job or not. As I left I forgot to shake the interviewers hand and this time going down the stairs I fell! OUCH!
A few days later I get a call from the manager to tell me to come in for a second interview. What!??!
MORAL OF THE STORY: You never know who you might impress!
