I sat at the kitchen table with my head in my hands.
The pain was unbearable, the throbbing in my temples and the hissing in my ears.
I knew something had happened last night, something bad but I couldn't remember what.
I remembered the party, I even remembered leaving and heading for the bus stop but after that... nothing.
The sound I heard next echoed through my aching head like a stab at the back of my eyes.
I knew what it was, of course, my coffee was in the microwave but still, it was the most annoying 'PING' ever!
