А у вас бывает ОБП?

Поскольку английский язык меня к себе все манит и манит, я регулярно добавляю в арсенал, так скажем, лингвистических игрушек, разные штуки. Вот, к примеру, www.urbandictionary.com — каждый день по одному слову/выражению. Большая часть из них мне незнакома совершенно, а порой ну очень веселые штуки встречаются.

FOSU — аббревиатура, которую на русский можно перевести как «ОБП», «Очень боюсь протрезветь». Люди с ОБП частенько начинают свой день «Кровавой Мэри» за завтраком, чтобы уж точно не протрезветь. Они часто используют общение со скучными людьми в качестве причины напиться.

«Hair of the dog» — тоже интересное выражение, кстати. И «asshats».

Рекомендую, в общем.
Acronym for Fear of Sobering Up. Someone who has FOSU may begin their drinking with Bloody Mary's over breakfast just to ensure they're never sober.
People suffering from FOSU often use boring people as a reason to get drunk in the first place.

Reginald: Dave, I'm hungover.
Dave: Hair of the dog, mate.
Reginald: Yeah, fair enough... Can you fix me a Bloody Mary or a Gin and Tonic? I don't wanna be sober around these other asshats.
Dave: Bro, you've got a hardcore case of FOSU.
Reginald: Yeah, but have you been trapped in a conversation with Betty or Rachael recently? It's like listening to an orchestra of cats.

As English to me all the lures and lures, I regularly add to the arsenal, so to speak, linguistic, toys, different things. Here, for example, www.urbandictionary.com - every day for one word / expression. Most of them are completely unfamiliar to me, as well, very funny at times things occur.

«Hair of the dog» — also an interesting phrase, by the way. And «asshats».

I recommend, in general.
