I attended a funeral for an old high school classmate this week who reportedly collapsed at home and was admitted to the hospital with liver failure.
So at the funeral home I talk to one of his best friends and get the rest of the story…....he very recently found out he has HIV and was drinking out of depression…....word was when he got to the hospital his blood alcohol concentration was .46!!
Good ol’ AL…....just as effective as a handgun….and yet another reason to take a hard look at the perils of drinking.
Well that’s easy…...it’s because I had to take the whole day off without pay to drive over 100 miles round trip and spend $108.00 to have my breathalyzer recalibrated on my truck.
Oh don’t pity me though…..I’m the FUCKUP who chose to drink and drive and am still paying through the nose for it over two years later.
Just do me favor and look at me as an example of how you don’t want to end up.
The weather here in East Tennessee finally turned cool. The humidity is finally down and the breeze is blowing some leaves off the trees!!
Fall is in the air and I’ve got today off from work with pay!!
It’s times like this that I crave a cold beer next to a fire out on the patio.
But instead of spending my money on beer today I think I’ll go to a craft festival and maybe buy a tie-dyed bandanna or a piece of pottery or something and eat me some boiled peanuts and kettle corn.
Gotta keep my mind off of these cravings that the change in seasons always brings…..let the police haul somebody else’s ass off to jail ‘cause I’m done with that shit!!
