Looking at the wise words on an old post reminded me that the question is: are we more ourselves when sober, or when relaxed and inebriated. Kentucky always thought this Robert Wyatt lyric put it very well. Joking apart when you’re drunk You’re terrific when you’re drunk I like you mostly late at night – you’re quite all right But I can’t understand the different you In the morning when it’s time to play at being human for a while Or, as Angela Carter said: the only way to be is alienated.
