Boss: I don't drink. After that first hangover, I said, "this is not for me." So I don't drink. I worked in the resort business for ten years taking care of drunks. I know there is a difference between drinking and being a drunk. I knew people who drank cologne.
Joel: What are you talking about? That's how you finish out the night. Drinking cologne is the only way to improve the smell of your breath after you've gone around and drank all the empties. It's the only thing that can combat a hundred stranger's combined backwash.
>>Then I looked across the sea of cubicles and saw a new employee pop her head up and do that kind of jaw drop smile face. We made eye contact. Instinctively, I batted my eyelashes, then laughed. She sat down. I sat down. Looked at the clock on the computer. Three more hours to go. Then I thought, you only get one crack at this whole big ongoing mess. Nah! I've got things too good. This has been one rollercoaster of a ride year, but it's ending at the very tippity top. Hey I didn't get arrested, like last year!
Happy New Years!
Happy New Year!
