So I had me some Johnnie Walker Red, then some Black then some J&B Rare and then I found myself in a different place where things just didn't seem to matter. You see, I had crossed the line and now was sipping high. No guilt. No denial. Just a damned good honest legal controlable scotch high.
I have a plasma TV and I sat back in my reclinable surfing channels.
Sipping. Sipping. I have a small library I've assembled over the last
decade, about 3000 volumes. I picked out three books and sat down sipping
(this time Red - dryer, lighter, harsher than the Black - but good) my
scotch and water and purusing the books. Phantasties by MacDonald, Don
Quijote de la Mancha (en Espanol) and The Intelligent Investor by Graham.
I opened a can of Planters Deluxe mixed nuts. Broke the vacuum seal and
heard a whooshing sound. They smell so good when first opened! Took a
small handful and ate. A perfect blend of nuts and scotch. Took another
sip - boy that was good. Then I got an inspriation! Popped a VHS (a
reasson for this) and watched Fantastic Planet, a very special 1970's
animated feature. I chose the VHS instead of DVD because the DVD has
embedded English subtitles you cannot turn off. The VHS is straight English
sound track with no subtitles. Incredible scenery - hallucinagenic. I
thought for a moment about an old girlfriend I HAD back in the 70's and felt
a little sad we did not keep in touch. What happened to her?
My wife cooked up some really good ribs and burgers on the grill and brought
them in with some Budweiser on ice (well, you can see why I chose this one
over the previously mentioned girlfriend). After dinner, a little
Glenlivet and some meditation on the week's events. I started The Lathe of
Heaven DVD and explained to my wife how this movie was only shown once on
PBS maybe about twenty years ago and then legal arguments kept it in the can
until now. George Orr....... what a trip. A good scotch high. Bring em'
