Still Surly

I took the day off work and took the dog to the park and I walked the loop and I tried to feel better, but I'm just fucking grouchy. The house smells slightly like cat piss and the living room is still a mess and the Butcher has "other things" to do other than pick it up and I'll be damned if I'm going to do it. Anyway, he's gone, which is good, because after thirteen hours in a car with him, I've had all the god damned togetherness I can take. It's eleven o'clock. I'd like to start drinking. Right now. Three things stand in my way: 1. I'd have to go out and buy liquor. 2. It's eleven in the morning. Christ. 3. Even if I could convince myself that my starting to drink at eleven in the morning would be best for everyone because it would improve my fucking attitude, I can't quite convince myself that my drinking alone at eleven in the morning is really that good an idea. It sets a precedent, and not a good one.

If the "alone" part is your biggest hangup, I'll join you. I have no problem drinking at 11:00 in the morning - especially today. Although, my boss may not like the idea..

What kind of mopey shit is this? Cast off the shackles of your Protestant drink ethic. By all that is holy, buy a bottle of Baileys and pour it into your coffee, if you can't work up the nerve to crack a beer.

Only amateurs wait until five to get their drink on.

Hell, I'm drinking a Bloody Mary right now. Hair of the dog, you know.

It's five o'clock somewhere.

As a good libertarian I feel it incumbent upon me to tell you that you can drink whenever you want.

Just don't ask me to buy the liquor.

"Protestant drink ethic."

It's funny 'cause it's true.

Happily, catching up on my comment reading reminded me that there's a bottle of tequila in the fridge. I don't have a lime, but I have some green Koolaid.

So, I'm going to sit out on the back porch, drink until I don't give a shit any more, moon some hobos, and pass out. Hopefully all early enough that I can still haul my ass to work tomorrow and be productive.
