After a long day and a terse night, I stumbled across this classic Simpsons gag that provided the exact amount of comic relief I needed yesterday. When in doubt, Simpsons.
Good joke though it is, I also have to be grateful that I do not, in fact, resemble Hans Moleman following my battle with the bottle. Because there are absolutely relatively young people who find the courage to quit drinking, but not before the damage has been done. Many of the physical side-effects of aggressive binge drinking are irreparable, and many have long-term health implications.
Gratitude today that I’m no cartoon character — neither in appearance, nor behavior.
