“You awake?” she asked
Once again, I’m gonna ask you to send me soup.
Every time I go through these two week periods with little sleep and lots of work, I worry about getting sick. And then I get sick.
Him: Nasty. Why rum?
Me: I like the taste of a good aged rum, like a Cruzan or Montecristo. Plus it’s got the least amount of carbohydrates, acetaldehyde and congeners so you can drink buckets of the stuff and never get a gut, a hangover, or into a fight. (pause) Also, I like to pretend I’m a pirate – YAAARRRRRG!
Her: (whispering) Are you awake?
Me: (sleepily) I’m always awake.
Location: back in my black chair
Mood: both sick & tired
Music: Around a quarter to two I have remembered all of my lines
