Hello. I'm writing a short in which a conversation happens between two individuals, one of which is completely drunk. Is there a verb which means "to say something in a drunk tone"? How can I avoid saying "he said in a drunk tone"? An example: "I'm fine. What are you talking about? I'm alright. The booze hasn't even kicked in yet," he said in a drunk tone. "You look pathetic," his wife scolded. "Come on! Can you stop being so uptight and come dance with me," he asked in a drunk tone. He walked awkwardly [like a drunk person walks] towards her to hug her. I am looking for some verbs to describe how a drunk person speaks and walks and avoid saying the same thing again and again.
