The Morning Whiskey

Hi Mr. Will,

How are you? I'm not sure if you still remember me. Do you remember that morning when you approached me and asked if you could join walking along with me? Then we did chat about many things. Your wife, your hometown in California, and you talked about the same things over and over again, and the aroma of alcohol was getting stronger as you spoke more. You talked about how fucked-up your life was, how this life were corrupted, how the local girls were trying so hard to hook-up with you because they thought you were filthy rich.. and many other ugly things. But then suddenly you stopped walking when we reached this quite huge field and pointed at the cloudy red-blue sky as the background of the city skyline, and you said "you know what beautiful is? this is beautiful.." and you said that many things around us are beautiful, but companies and governments made people loosing their sense of beauty. And everything become ugly and shitty. You said that you wished you had a book that contains all of the answers of life, like kind of a manual to live. You wished you had it and gave it to me. I didn't know what to respond and I offered you my pray, but you refused it and told me to take care of myself and also people around me, people that I love. You left with stagger steps. I just hoped that you would reach home safely. Do you remember any of that?

That time I said to myself how awful people are when they are drunk. But you know what, I drank quite plenty of alcohol last week. 2 glasses of wine, 2 cans of beer, and one glass of vodka (with sprite) I took. It was quite tough for me because I've never got drunk before. I said to myself "welcome to the adulthood..!". I enjoyed it though; felt happy, left behind my problems for awhile and had so much fun with friends. I started to understand why people actually need alcohol. . Maybe when people drunk, they can gain their sense of beauty back, they are happy regardless of how hard their situation are. I really wish I could have some of those liquors again right now.

Well, maybe we can drink together next time mr. Will, and talk about the bitter-sweet taste of life. It's gonna be fun. Take care!
