The best advice I’ve ever received.
I’ve watched 67 people die and, at the moment of truth, I looked into their eyes and they knew and I knew they got what they deserved. But what if that’s not what happens? If you don’t get what you deserve? If what you deserve is a white picket fence and your kids all around and a husband who loves you? What if the least you deserve is a real human being and what you get instead is me?
That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.
