After discovering a debilitating gluten allergy at age 27, Keight McGrath’s world was turned upside down.

Since that horrible afternoon last April, she’s kept to a strict vegetarian diet and drastically reduced her alcohol intake.

However, one of her many vices is the explosive action and entertainment that one can only draw from the wellspring of rugby league football.

Telling herself yesterday morning that she’d take it easy at the post-work Origin drinks party her boutique North Betoota marketing agency was throwing last night, the 28-year-old didn’t stick to her word.

“I had enough rosé to put Rosie O’Donnell to bed,” said Ms McGrath.

“In every since of the word, by the time I got home, I was absolutely legless. My parents were mortified at the state of me. It is what it is.”

Throwing her morals to the wind over lunch, Keight paid a well-overdue visit to her local McDonalds family restaurant where she took the healthy option of ordering a Diet Coke with her Quarter Pounder meal.

“I had to make sure that nobody from work saw me,” she said.

“But I’m just so fucking dusty today, shit I’m sick. I needed some red meat and some hot chips. Who am I kidding? My eyes feel like they’ve had sand thrown in them.”

When asked if she’d continue lying to herself and remain a vegetarian, the saucy Sagittarius said yes she would.

“This is just a one off. I’ll be back on the rabbit food train tomorrow.”

More to come.
