I didn't wake up this morning planning to be drunk by 2pm.
Of course, I'm on vacation from school. That does give me entirely too much free time to play with. And when the cleaning crew showed up around 12:30, I decided that it might be awkward to sit around and watch them do what I should be able to realistically do on my own. Sloth like tendencies aside.
So, I wandered down the street to my favorite sushi restaurant. I partook of the sashimi lunch plate. I didn't plan on ordering booze but the server opened the wine list to the sake page and waited expectantly for me to give her the good word. I just couldn't bring myself to disappoint her.
In addition to my actual order, the nice people at the restaurant gifted me with free wasabi peas (the better to keep me drinking) and, at the end of my meal, a thinly shaved 4 inch cone of cucumber filled with a salad of crab and tempura flakes bound by mayonnaise. It was awesome. And free.
I love those people. I need to get paid so I can go back there for dinner. They have scallop carpaccio and uni shooters. And right now, I have a looming mortgage payment.
The problem for me, once I start drinking, is that if I stop then I want to take a nap. So, I wandered up the street to the conveniently placed liquor store around the corner from the condo. While I was shuffling up the sidewalk, trying to avoid slush and large puddles (they do a real bang up job of clearing the sidewalks on this side of town), a jogger blew by me on the left heedless of the snow banks and charcoal colored ice gaking up the sidewalk. Turns out his destination was the liquor store too. No word of a lie. As far as I know Boone's Farm doesn't make sports drinks. I might have told him, but he seemed so happy fingering his cold bottle of Strawberry Hill Rectal Explosion that I figured, who am I to get between a man and his electrolytes?
I've decided I'm going to spend the rest of the day drinking Sapporo and watching Japanese horror movies until I pass out. Yes. This is a good plan. Believe it.
