Love Means Never Having To Say I’m Not The One Who’s The Alcoholic

I don't drink - alcohol, that is. I stopped drinking it December 2009. Before that, I liked to drink, and did so whenever I wanted. No too much, you understand -  just a glass of red or two, probably five nights a week, and sometimes the whole bottle except for the last half a glass I'd stumble over and tip down the sink swearing not to do it again the next night.

The Promises We Make Our Bodies

We have been through so much together, you and me. In my much younger days, you were perkier and less lumpy. A fitting end to my giraffe-like legs that were also free of lumps and bumps, veins and baggy parts. In college, you were made for 501's and not much else. I could eat and eat, once cramming in 11 pizza burgers in the college cafeteria, and you wouldn't change a bit. ...more
