Bourbon On The Rocks #113

“So, I started staying out at night, drinking and not coming home until really late. She just kept withdrawing from me so I started staying out later and drinking even more. One day I staggered home and she was gone. Lock, stock and barrel.”

I really felt bad for him.

“And then I got to where I just didn’t even care if I lived or died. I started gambling, associating with people I shouldn’t have. I was walking a tightrope, Jakey. And I was almost hoping I would fall. But I just couldn’t make myself drop, ya know? Too scared.”

    You should still be scared Misty if you’re gonna keep calling him Jakey!

    I think he's finally given up on expecting Milton to stop calling him that. I have an uncle that we all called "Ricky," but years later he decided that sounded juvenile and wanted to be called "Rick." But to this day whenever I see him (which isn't often) I still call him Ricky out of sheer habit.

    I meant Milty of course. Damn autocorrect!
