I haven't had a drink this year. I used to be a heavy drinker but slowed down as I got older and smarter. I literally have a cabinet full of aviation grade premium rot gut and haven't touched a drop. I have been accused of alcoholism on several occasions as a younger man. Maybe I am - it would be so easy for me to break my streak and go slam a big drink just for the hell of it. I'm unemployed right now so I am staying away from the booze on general principles. It just seems to be the right thing to do for some reason - but I can feel it, sometimes. If I get that job flipping burgers at Rotten Ronnie's, then maybe I will celebrate with a drink. Or maybe I will abuse alcohol after today's shooting to compensate for my dismal failures as a marksman.
In any event, it's Range Day. The Usual Suspects are warned not to say rotten things about me in the comments while I am away.
