Temporary Suicide

27 Dec

What’s drinking? A mere pause from thinking! — George Gordon, Lord Byron ‘The Deformed Transformed”

Drunkenness is a temporary suicide, so they say. Been there, done that not. I haven’t been committing the temporary suicide and plan not to. Of course not a single soul does plan  to commit the drinking crime; it’s just a way of getting yourself drift away from your sober self.

Pretending to be sober is a skill, a skill I learnt when I was almost caught in the drinking madness (almost!). Some lose in the battle they get themselves into. They can be pretty nasty expressing their unsober-mindedness. Or they can say things that got yourself oh-so-over-the-moon — “a mere pause from thinking”, that is!

To say the least, it’s every individual’s right to get wasted or to be soberly. Just please don’t go ruining other people’s fun and merry-making. All that matters is that “don’t drink and cause commotion”.  In the end, he (who must not be named) ended up causing a ghastly ruckus, after all.
