Drive Drunking

I don’t drive. I’ve lived in a metropolitan area for my whole life and the privilege of public transportation and everything being a bike ride away trumps parking tickets, paying for gas and auto insurance. Somebody once asked me, “Don’t you wish you had the freedom of a car? Just jump in your car and go anywhere and just be free?”

“Usually I jump to the bottom of a bottle if I want to go anywhere and just be free. Alcohol is my vehicle of choice.”

Unfortunately that somebody was my boss, and I later got fired for reasons that didn’t directly include but could probably have been attributed to alcohol.
