Compare the number of sentences and level of "personality energy"in the two cases.

This is an excellent example of two minds enslaving each other in ego. Why not just substitute "drunk" with "intoxicated".
Two unspoken truths are the cultivation of a sense of humour and common sense, let's get back to both eh guys.

"Who called anyone literally drunk here?"

You comparatively derived a metaphor of 'word' drunkenness from a
source of literal drunkenness. 'Another way to get drunk' as per
your thread title. You were deriving a metaphor from the literal,
even as all metaphors are derived from the literal as comparative
communication devices.

"I thought you could perceive "getting drunk" is a metaphor."

Most certainly. And in the context of your obvious offendedness, a
derogatory metaphor at best. Metaphors are used as comparisons to
the literal as a literary device. You were comparing. And your
comparative metaphor was in relation to something that you detest.

"Pay attention, "Vince"."

Sounds pretty aggressive, lolol. Forced perspectives don't make too
much headway with me. I think you're still offended. At what, I
really don't know, because you said that you didn't feel that I had
tricked you. But you're offended nonetheless. Do you require
continued assistance working through your offendedness?
