How dry I am.

Posted by Ryan A on September 08, 2003

What does the phrase "How dry I am" mean? I think "dry" means drunk, but what's the connection between being dry and inebriated?

I saw a guy in a movie from the fifties say, "Aw, let him drink himself dry." in reference to a guy drinking a lot at a bar.
