30DW2-2 - Day 27: And That's Why I Got Drunk



I thought today was Day 28 of 30 Days of Writing II minus 2.

But Nicky told me we still have another day to go.

And that's why I got drunk.


Really? The saying isn't "I can drink you under the bench"?


Weave your way over to We Drink for Cheese and see what everybody else's excuse is.

Is that the Group W bench?
Boom Boom Larew said…
Because I'm already there...

That's the "D" for drunk bench.

Where? I thought we were on our way to Nicky's? Good thing you're not driving.

Looks like you might need a little help getting up, dufus. ;)

Apparently I'm late to the party. Is there any left?
Cheryl P. said…
Ouch! I haven't ever been that drunk.
Ziva said…
There's another day to go?? Is there room for one more under that bench?
nonamedufus said…
I'll be okay, as long as I get up in time for tomorrow's LAST post.
nonamedufus said…
The picture isn't really of me. Just a reasonable facsimile.
nonamedufus said…
Just enough, Ziva.
Cheryl P. said…
I kind of figured that wasn't REALLY you...that poor guy look like he might not ever come back from that binge.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I usually keep my shoes on when I drink.

Nice pic! I think a couple of pints would get me there these days. Cheers, Doof! Indigo

I wish I'd been drunk the entire month.
nonamedufus said…
That's okay. this bench will do fine.
nonamedufus said…
A couple of pints puts me right to sleep nowadays.

Great idea for our next challenge, Mike. We'll start March 1st. 30 Days of Drinking Plus 1. Name your poison.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
