Celebrate the mistakes I hadn't made yet
Drinking alcohol can lead to fun times in terms of celebrating, but can also lead to mistakes and unnecessary trouble.
As legendary drunkard Charles Bukowski once said, “If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.”
Macklemore’s also suggesting that the habitual use of alcohol in the party lifestyle is really a celebration of the bad mistakes one will make while drunk. These “bad” decisions are made possible by the drunktaneous mindset and make life seem more exciting.
