I have my MacBook Pro 13” Model A1278 but I accidentally dropped alcohol to my computer, on the right side, I shut it down, but then I turned it on and it went crazy. My keyboard isn't working properly and it's even turning on by itself. Do I have to wait for it to dry? Or what should I do?

Or gravy.

Yup, I once destroyed a $140 keyboard by having it and a plate with Thanksgiving leftovers balanced on my laptop. Poured gravy right into the keys!
The Schnapps reference was from like 1988 or 1989 when we used to have MIDIMaze parties, about 12 of us got together regularly to link out Atari STs together with MIDI cables and play MIDIMaze. Some evil person brought in a big bottle of Peach and a big bottle of Peppermint schnapps... Hilarity ensued, one of the guys drank WAY too much of the Peach on an empty stomach - and threw up on his keyboard... That was the last time he came to one of the gatherings...
