“He was a wise man who invented beer.” ~ Plato
So many of you, especially the younger people, may see this and think to yourselves, “Oh wow, that guy is an alcoholic.”
I understand the misconception. Allow me to explain.
Full disclosure, I was raised by alcoholics. Well, not so much “raised” as “allowed to escape” but yeah, I thought my name was “honey get me another Budweiser from the ‘fridge” until I was about 10 years old. I know what constitutes a heavy drinker and an alcoholic and believe me when I say I’m neither of these things.
“But, but,” you might think, “you drink all this stuff, and you write all this stuff when you drink… aren’t you drunk all the time?”
What you see here is the result of a moderate amount of booze lubricating the muse. I don’t drink very often, but when I do, as my inhibitions lower, my desire to communicate my feelings and experiences in words rises to unbearable heights and I soon have to vomit such things upon the page and all over the internet. The majority of the time I just work, sleep, play video games, and masturbate incessantly like a regular person. Or at least, a regular nerd.
So what you see here is only a fraction of what I do, please don’t be alarmed. And stop calling my mother to complain, it just upsets her.
Sooner or later, I will post here my very own guide to imbibing responsibly; i.e. in a way that is enjoyable without undo risk to life and limb and liberty. Beer, wine, and spirits, are meant to be enjoyed and savored with life, not to take the place of.
Moderation in drinking, as in everything, is the key to happiness.
More to come…
