When I was a child I drank as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish drinks.

Last night, after the boys and Athanasia were in bed I felt like drinking.  So I went to the Duke of Edinburough in Cupertino.  It took me a long time to decide what to order.  I settled on my old favorite: The Martini.  This particular martini was a 4-1 made, Tanqueray, two olives.  I only had one but it was beautiful.

Sitting there, drinking that drink, I felt like my old self again.

Today, I got a job offer.  I start to work on Monday.

Now, if I can just get my wife to love me again, everything will be all right.

Personally I like a good Scotch. Neat. Congrats on the job. Praying for the marriage.

I've always been a "bud light" man myself!
Great news about the job!
hope all goes well in other areas of your life, as well.

So glad about the job! Yes, we should pray for healing to begin before more gets broken. Lord, have mercy.
