^ ^ ^ Totally! It's also an anxiety ridden moment when Hugh writes a "pre-day nutshell" post about hopefully not ending up in a Dumpster or getting picked up by a serial rapist and then has yet to post afterwards...
Ha! Well, here's what happened. Something most unusual indeed. I opened my front door, took a good look at all that bright sunshine, and then closed the door. With me still inside. I grabbed my book and headed for the couch. I stayed home. One of my New Year's resolutions was to cut back on bars, it's a resolution I make and break every year, but this is gonna be my year. It was a beer and whiskey night at home. But it wasn't all peaches and cream. I'm becoming more and more incontinent as I drink beer. It makes me get up to pee every four or five minutes (not exaggerating, I've timed it) and there's always a few drops that wait to exit until after I've zipped back up. Wine doesn't do this to me. Will I be forced to give up beer?
LMAO!

I am reading online today about the corona virus widespread hysteria and how the stores here are getting sparse on supplies. This is super annoying because it most certainly fks up our typical routine grocery shopping if there's no toilet paper and pasta. So we decided to go check it out to see if we had to stock up on normal stuff before the doomsdayers wipe everything out.

We are putzing around and yeah the pasta and canned goods took a major hit but nothing too crazy. Then we got to the vodka section and there were like, 8 bottles left. Now THAT was panic worthy.

After passing out on the couch as the liittle lady couldn't raise my dead ass, I eventually regained consciousness and found I was still properly shit faced. I'm amazed no one said anything during the first few hours at work cause it was a bit of a struggle on my end. Surprisingly there was no early afternoon hangover, just an out of sorts feeling that lasted the rest of the day. Most likely from a shitty night's sleep. Sipping tall cans tonight, no whiskey, gonna be a good boy. Cheers people.

Worked the closing shift today and got off at midnight. Tired as shit, but not too tired to not drink some WT Rare Breed.

I miss the days when I could pull all-nighters playing Counter Strike and be fine -- the amphetamines probably helped with that one.

Liquor stores close at midnight there? I feel so cheated living here with the 9-9:30 bullshit.

Some of the stores out here are stocking up on potato chips, Fritos, Cheetos, etc. to be prepared for a run on supplies. I work in a warehouse that supplies Frito Lay products to stores, and we also supply them to the Amazon Prime Now place that delivers groceries same day. The Amazon account doesn't usually order a lot of stuff from us. They only place two orders per week and each order is one or two pallets worth of stuff. This week their order was 14 pallets of stuff! There's no fucking way they'll sell all that stuff, not even grocery stores sell that much stuff on holiday weekends. I don't know what the fuck these people are thinking.

This morning I was in a Walgreens to get bread and milk and a customer was asking a clerk, "Where's the hand sanitizer?" The clerk was just at that moment getting ready to restock it because it keeps selling out.

One good thing about this coronavirus panic is that the stock market is selling off and I've got a couple of stocks I'll buy and sell back to them later when coronavirus is all but forgotten.

Laundry done, errands run, apartment cleaned. Even cooked a meal for myself. Getting things done is a sure fire way to lift you out of depression. I've got a couple of injuries that have gotten bad enough that they are slowing me down at work to the point that other people are noticing. I'm usually the first loader done with his share, but this week I've been finishing almost last. It had me so bummed out I didn't even drink at all last night. But now I'm ready to pour the wine and get fucked up.

Starting drinking an hour early, since we have to move our clocks forward an hour this weekend.

We do? Do we lose an hour this weekend?

*checks*

Fuck, I had no idea! And tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day? Oh, the hangovers are going to be monstrous!

I woke up delirious and groggy from a night of drinking. Showered, freshened up and got my ass to work. I fell asleep on the train and rode it all the way to the end of the line, which was hilarious. But I woke up and hopped on the opposite track, back to my stop where my job is a quick walk from the station. Quick cup of coffee and I was fine. I should've gone to lunch and had a few cocktails just to even myself out. Instead, I went to the gym to sweat the remnants of the previous night from my body.

I think I'm going to turn in early tonight, there's a fight I want to see tomorrow and they show them at the bars around here. I'll make a night of it, go out drinking, watch a fight and throw up a middle finger to Daylight Savings.

Earlier this year I began submitting my writing to lit mags with a little higher brow. And now the rejects are pouring in. They all say the same thing, how much they enjoyed reading my shit and they encourage me to submit again in the future. I'd really rather they just tell me to take my illiterate ass and hit the fucking road and never come back. (I actually did get a reject a couple of years ago from an agency that said my novel didn't meet their standards of story or writing. At least I know they really read it before telling me to get lost.)

But on the other hand I had another poem post this morning, I got the notification at the same time I got the reject from the other place. I write a lot of poems about "Lonely Old Man" and some of them can be quite cruel, but this place accepted one of them. Here it is: https://ryethewhiskeyreview.blogspot.co ... Z-Lu7QOFm0

In one of Bukowski's letters when he was young, he said that he wondered if his submissions were just going out into some empty hole of machinery that spits out rejects. But then later as he got famous, he said he became what he used to resent when everything he sent out would be accepted anywhere he sent it. There's a couple of places out there that have accepted everything I've sent them, even the "zingers" I stick in there to see if they're really paying attention. They accept those, too. But I've got to keep setting my sites higher.

Hangovers seem a bit milder when you wake up in a freshly cleaned apartment.

I really enjoyed this tight little tale. You have a terrific way of putting the reader right in the same room as your characters. Please keep it up.

Mrs Booze and I enjoyed a classic staycation this weekend. I took Friday off from work, so it was a nice three day weekend to accomplish the goal of behaving like we were out of town without actually traveling. To prepare, we stocked up on rum, vodka, gin, rye, and a decent selection of mixers, fruit and snacks.

Our friend, BRIAN! and his girlfriend joined us on Friday night and we all got shitty drunk while sitting on the patio. I'm sure our neighbors were pleased. By now, they have probably found the bottles and non-working bic lighters that were used in a game we invented called "let's throw a bunch of shit over the fence."

On Saturday, we called an Uber to deliver us to Ruby's, one of our favorite dives. We drank there until it was no longer a pleasure to serve us. We left and walked to another bar called Bobby Salazars. We decided to drink a couple pitchers of Margaritas.

Mrs Booze and BRIAN!'s gal were a little too toasty to carry on, so we returned home. The girls went to bed while BRIAN! and I continued our mission of drinking everything that was drinkable. He asked about AD, Oett, Nausea, Patchy, and Mrs Patchy. He told me to tell you hello. He also told me to say hi to Jack Ruby, so I don't think he knew what he was saying.

When I woke up this morning, I realized I did some fucking drunk time traveling as it's now an hour later than it should be.

Hello Brian,
I lost at darts again today, because I suck at it and I suck even worse when shitfaced.
Typing this takes me hours, I am drunk already.
AD wants to post some drunk golf videos later.
