Even if the Drinking Man is dead I still enjoy reminiscing about people and drinking. There is just something so satisfying about having a few pints on a Friday night, listening to Bobby D., searching for some fine cleavage, and stringing together a few words. My life is good – I love my wife and two kids, I’m half way healthy, and most of the time enjoy my job. But you can’t help but miss the promise of how you thought your life would turn out. I certainly had higher expectations when I was younger. I stayed at University because I saw The Clash in the movie Rude Boy!!! For heaven’s sake when was the last time a movie changed your whole world? I guess when you are younger everything is just simpler. As Bob Dylan says:
May God bless and keep you always, May your wishes all come true, May you always do for others And let others do for you. May you build a ladder to the stars And climb on every rung, May you stay forever young.
