what are you
haven’t seen you
what do you mean
when someone is
dying they see
No way, you don’t mean’…
‘yes, son, I think you know what I mean.
your time’s up. You have nothing to say about it’.
‘I didn’t commit slow suicide like you did’.
‘That’s right son, I drank myself to death.
But, it was sure fun until my liver gave out and the party was over… But,
way down here my dear boy, you can drink all you want and your liver will
always keep on ticking. what do you say, should we get down to some serious
drinking and catch up on old times’?
‘Ah, no offense dad, but if you don’t mind, I’m not quite ready. plenty of booze up here.
Anyway, I’m seriously thinking about laying off the hard stuff and drink an occasional glass of wine instead.
I don’t eat meat anymore. Bad cholesterol. I’ve been thinking about going
totally vegetarian, maybe quitting alcohol altogether’
‘God, son, that’s not what I call living the good life. I think I’d rather be dead than live like that’!
