I’m Not Drunk

“Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night,
Without thinking you lost everything that was good in your life to the toss of the dice?”
What It Takes, Aerosmith

S’really okay, ah’m fine. Stop lookin’ at me like that. You know what I mean, yer always lookin’ at me like that, like you know better. Like you know wha’s goin’ on in my mind. Oooo. I. Am. O. K.

Ah’m jus’ a little bit drunk, tha’s all. Nothin’ to worry about. No, I was’n’ cryin’, I was just partakin’ of the night air. Isa’ lovely night, you should go out there. Yes, I know it’s rainin’, that doesn’t mean it can’t be a lovely night too, does it?

Why, yes, I will have another vodka, thankyouverymuch. No, I don’ think ah’ve had enough already, I can still feel. Feeling is bad. I don’ wanna feel. If I have a few more a’ these then mebbe I won’ feel nuffink. That’d be nice, eh?

You know, yer really very lovely, I don’ know if I’ve ever tol’ you that? Oh, I have? Was ah drunk then too? Yeah, figures. Ah’m crap at bein’ honest when I’m sober. Actually, ah’m jus’ generally crap. Tha’s very kind of you to say, but it’s true, I know it is. It has to be true else, you know… Shush. Yer jus’ bein’ nice, but thank you.

S’okay, tomorrow I’ll wake up ‘an feel like an idiot, an’ prolly text you an apology fer bein’ like this. Then I’ll pick meself up, dust meself off an’ start all over again…again.

I mean, fuggit, I can’t keep rollin’ ones, can I? Heh…snake eyes…

Snake Eyes is cool…
