"Alcohol costs a lot of money."---Ernie's Heart
Valve Journal.

You bet it does! I first took that to heart when
a friend and I used to drive into San Francisco
about once a month to see a play in downtown
SF. Parking downtown was so expensive that
we used to park near Aquatic Park, which was
free then, and take the cable car to the theatre
district. The parking savings was enough to
pay for the cable car plus our first Irish Coffee
at the nearby Buena Vista Cafe.

But we didn't stop at one Irish Coffee: usually
we had about three. This went on until one
night we couldn't get into the Buena Vista and
had to go to the theatre stone cold sober. As
the cable car crested the first big hill we felt a
strong lurch and crash. Inquiry told us the dip
had long been there; we just didn't feel it after
three Irish Coffees. The texture of the play that
night seemed much more complex than usual,
too.

Since then I don't get sloshed. I just drink
enough to get nicely loosened up. That does
not take a lot because I am especially sensitive
to alcohol--this runs in my family. And when
I recently had to give up drinking altogether
due to some medicines I must take, I didn't
much miss the alcohol. I should add that I pay
little attention to people who get down on me
for no good reason.

These days I drink exotic teas. The flavors are
more subtle and satisfying than any cocktails,
and the people involved are pretty nice.
