Brookston has a great piece compiling information on the history of the term “hangover” and other phrases that have been used.

Believe it or not, apparently the word “hangover,” meaning “a severe headache or other after effects caused by drinking an excess of alcohol,” was first used around 1902 or 1904 (depending on the source).

I don’t wanna spoil too much of it, but I gotta say “the zings” is kind of adorable.  Go check out the whole piece now or the next time you can’t get out of bed.
