Drinks Alone...

People often ask us: ASM, why do you drink alone?

We aren't embarrassed about it. It's OK. We've grown. We've moved on. We no longer compulsively check for email, hoping to discover messages from long-lost friends. No, we are going to be fine. We sort through our mail, like anyone else, and pay the bills, call our parents, maybe make a nice dinner. Maybe we'll take a bath and read a book. Maybe take a continuing education class, you know, to get back out there. We're good. Really. We just want to finish up this drink. You go on ahead. No, really, this is the last one.

Though it is conceivable that one or two of these jokers will be too ashamed of their past to perform.
