Ah, back to Friday. Dangerous, unpredictable Friday.
I got off the train after work and got a coffee to drink on the walk home. I walked past a liquor store and told myself I wasn’t going to go in there. But I went in there. And I purchased a half pint of vodka.
“I’ll just keep it at home, just in case.” I tell myself. ‘Just in case’ what?! What reason would I ever NEED to have alcohol somewhere in the house?! And a half-pint? Who buys those, other than alkies?
Well, that was about two hours ago.
About five minutes ago I went into the kitchen, emptied out half a bottle of Vitamin Water and dumped the entire half-pint in there. I walked into the bedroom, paused for a few moments, turned around, went back to the kitchen and dumped the entire thing down the sink.
A waste of $6, but I can afford to pay $6 for another sober evening.
