Long Island Ice Tea

I'm fishing around in my pocket for a dollar for the guy sitting on a milk crate in front of the grocery store while he regales me.

"Those guys who look like," he gestures at my face, "they try to get me, and they drink that, that, you know - Jack Daniels, and their faces get all red. And they got me a like, a long island iced tea."

The shame starts creeping up my spine, since I can't find anything but a twenty, but I'm still trying to listen, and he says, "I watch him make the second one, and he threw the whole damn bar in there!"

Two years ago today: Showtime for One
Three years ago today: Not Exactly Suited for an Office
Five years ago today: 11/12/11 too soon?
Six years ago today: 11/12/10 Close Enough
Seven years ago today: 11/12/09 - Really, it's tougher on the people around me, that on me
