All he'd have to do is drag that trashed leather chair into the streets and give those rioters that thousand yard stare while wearing his grey DB and black hat.

It's a good thing Paul hadn't heard of bourbon...

I might just have a nice glass of bourbon or Canadian rye after work.

This has been my experience as well.

Sometimes I drink water just to throw my liver a curveball.

Clear liquor doesn't count as water.

Disregard.

Thankfully I dont think I've ever been recognized. Though I guess it's not a bad thing. I might act confused for shits and giggles.

Shoot, people have expectations when you come from a family that has had 3 generations of ministers. 

 

When I was a teetotaler (until I was about 30) the two most difficult things for me were (a) convincing people that I was enjoying myself even though I wasn't drinking and (b) trying to avoid making others feel bad because I wasn't drinking and they were. So many people wanted there to be an important reason why I didn't drink (was my dad an abusive alcoholic?, did I know someone close to me killed by a drunk driver?, did my religious beliefs prohibit me from drinking?) when the simple truth was that I had never tasted anything I liked and I was totally wary of the loss of self-control that came with drinking.

 

Once I did start to drink a little bit, it no longer felt right to say, "no thank you, I don't drink" when turning down an offer of a drink. Instead I started to say, "no thank you, I don't drink much."

 

If I had known how quickly the addition of that single word ended the conversation about drinking, I'd have used that all through college and avoided a lot of awkward conversations!
