Postcard #104: "Leaving Las Eatontown..."
Leaving Las Eatontown
I’ve been drinking a lot…We are moving. We have a very well-stocked liquor cabinet. So, rather than packing it for our move, we decided it’s better to get rid of it. We offer bottles to visitors, family…and of course drinking it. We have been trying to polish off a bottle each night. Sometimes we are lucky and we will have bottles with only a finger or two left in them. Bottles of Bourbon, whiskey, or tequila I thought were so delectable that we wanted to save them for a special occasion or toast. They are now unceremoniously being consumed in my kitchen surrounded by cardboard boxes…often times straight from the bottle. “Hello, I am a drunk unemployed nurse.” My wife drags me by my feet across the linoleum floor to try to put me to bed. Meanwhile, I’m laughing hysterically while I record her struggle on my shaky cell phone. My dog…confused and happy licks my face while barking my wife.
