Is it natural and correct to say drink a thing meaning to exchange the thing for alcohol or sell it to get alcohol to drink it? For example:
After John lost his job, he drank all the valuable things he had.
In the TV show Friends the next morning after a party, where Chandler drank a lot of alcohol, he said
Well, my apartment isn’t there anymore, because I drank it.
Did he use the phrase jokingly in the sense of selling his apartment to get more alcohol?
