Six Liters of Water - STAT!

In Miami, we went to a club in South Beach. It was really cool - it was the typical Miami Club Scene!!

We're all, talking, laughing, drinking, etc... I was on my 2nd drink when I told Justin I didn't feel good and needed to go to the bathroom. I turned around to face the bar, and I just fainted. Luckily I fell sideways, landed on my friend, and slid down the side of him...

My first thought was that someone slipped something in my drink. They brought me to the bathroom I put my head in-between my legs and I started sweating, but I never got sick, so I didn't think it was the result of a spiked drink... and the fact that I was with 4 doctors, all of which diagnosed me with dehydration... guess I was in good company for something like that to happen! but talk about embarrassing! 'Hi, I'm Ashley and Justin's friend, watch me faint!' haha - nothing like that has ever happened to me before!!! Justin went and grabbed the car, we all went back to Justin's where they continued to drink, and I was stuck with Gatorade water!
Of course one of my first concerns was "please tell me I didn't flash anyone when I fell!" (I was wearing a dress) but they all said I faint like a lady - legs crossed to the side and everything :) All I was missing was the dramatic hand across my forehead! haha

I guess next time I go on the beach for 4-5 hours, I will remember to drink water while I am out there... apparently I get dehydrated pretty fast!

YIKES...H2O is a must, especially in the sun! I am glad you fainted like a lady, but I honestly can't see you doing it any differently! When I pack a cooler for the beach I try to pack equal amounts of water and beer, or water and vodka...you get the idea!

Scary!! Glad you fainted without flashing the entire bar. I don't think most of us would have been so graceful. :)
