Sometimes when you're feeling a bit melancholy, or even a bit jolly, that's the best thing to do. Just drink. That was always the plan back in college when I was a lush. (Alcoholics go to meetings and I'm no quitter). I had a drinking partner. We don't talk anymore, haven't in 2 and a half years... and for no reason, but she was my closest friend in college after Stace left.
Here was the plan. If we had a bad day, one of us would walk in and say, "I had a bad day, I need a drink." If it was a good day, one of us would walk in and say, "I had a good day, I need a drink!" Oh my. It was such fun. I had a ball in college. I wouldn't trade those years for millions of dollars. I really wouldn't. I wouldn't know Stace or Ash or Wynel or Sha Boogie and on and on I could go. So many of the best people I know I met at Hampton.
Today was a good day. Then I came home and watched the rest of "Spanglish." I'd never seen it before and it is FANTASTIC. But it really makes you think. Hence the need for the drink. Life goes and goes and goes and sometimes you just need to stop...
and just drink.
