[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] Have a drink on me.
Last night the clone and I were lounging around the outdoor fireplace swapping tales about the crazed exploits of our mad lives of turmoil. He was getting gassed on gin and tonics, and I had a beer before switching to Coke since the last thing I really want to do is play with fire with a head full of Vicodin and alcohol.
Bad things happen that way.
Trust me. I know this.
Anyway, being the accommodating (and perpetually hungry) lout that I am, some cheese and crackers were served on an old, maple cutting board.
The cutting board was placed by the fire, and conversation resumed and moved along at the sort of pace capable of two people with heads fogged from either opiates or gin. It was fun, the munchies were devoured, and, finally, the cutting board burst into flames.
It was a win for everyone.
P.S. To be honest, the cutting board broke a long time ago, and rather than get the glue and mend it (again), I decided that it would be much more fun to burn. Plus, my other brother (#2) made a replacement out of a thick hunk of maple --a single piece of solid maple. It will last forever.
