(n): The state of nausea experienced the morning after prom
. The feeling is not induced by excessive alcohol
, but symptoms are similar to those of an alcoholic hangover. They include headaches, sore throats, an exhausted limp feeling, aversion to loud noises (or in some cases, inability to hear sounds below 90 decibels
), and aversion to bright light.
For the morally conscious, prom hangover
also includes regret of ethically sketchy acts committed during and after prom night. For everyone else, prom hangover comes with a member of either sex in their bed.
Ugh, I didn't drink a thing last night but my head hurts and I feel horrible. And why did I flash
the limo driver? I think I'm having a prom hangover.
