Yeah so we were gonna have a Senior Night Out at a pub in Southie, after the final final. This was in an email I got last night:

"We need to take a vote. They have an option for a 2 hr open bar starting @ 6p-8p.
For $22 a person, it includes all beers, wines, well drinks (no grey goose, jack, barcardi etc.. just BAR alcohol), soda, coffee, and tea. This also includes a tip.

For $28 a person, it includes all beer,wine, call liquor (no grey goose, patron, but you can get barcardi, jack, etc), soda, coffee, and tea. This also includes a tip."

I don't understand why there should be an open bar at all. I mean I might like to have a Mountain Dew or three, but that won't cost $22. And then there's the second option. Grey Goose? Patron? I don't know what these things are.

I was leaning towards going, but I don't wanna pay $30 to get in. I simply fail to understand this seemingly universal obsession with alcohol. I don't get what's so appealing about puking on yourself at 3 in the morning and then waking up the next day dehydrated with a terrible headache. Maybe I'm missing something.

I'm considering complete abstinence from alcohol for the rest of my life. I don't really consider that any sort of asceticism, as I find nothing pleasurable about the consumption of spirits.

Remember those "Bacardi and Cola" commercials? Those were brilliant. Drink Bacardi. It's so bad you have to mask the taste with Cola.

Let me get this straight. I often overhear people boasting about how much liquor they drank at some recent party. Let's just say they had ten "drinks" of some sort. You would never have 10 sodas. You would never drink 10 bottles of water. You would never have 10 green teas. But you can't get enough of a substance used to kill microorganisms in healthcare settings.

Bacigalupo occasionally asks if we're going out drinking for graduation. I tell him I'll go if they have Mountain Dew there. He tells me I can't drink Mountain Dew unless it has Jack in it. Now why would I ruin a Dew by mixing it with alcohol?

Then yesterday he had to go to the RMV in Revere to renew his licence. I suggested that he go to the RMV in Chinatown, and then join me for Bubble Tea. Do you know what he said? He said he doesn't drink tea unless it's twisted.

You can't spell intoxicated without toxic.
