What a beautiful evening buffet! And, look, we can even stand in line naked! Pour the egg flower soup carefully, everyone!
Whaaa, using c2h5oh for what the bar serves reminds me that even this tasty foie gras is made up of chemicals. In fact, to the outside of us, food can
be sensuous, but inside it's chemicals. And there are good chemicals and bad chenicals, and sometimes an individual's body chooses which is which.
Ooooeee, don't experiment with escolar fish unless you're willing to be unpleasantly surprised, for example.
OK, so alcohol is a chemical, and scientific findings have shown that some people (alcoholics) lack a chemical in their brain that acts as a stop
sign. Now, I have proven that I can abuse alcohol (no tequila, por favor!!), but even my brain says, "OK, enough, quit drinking, don't need any
more." An alcoholic's brain literally doesn't know when to quit! And, what's more, even bad experiences (i.e. hangovers, blackouts, ruined
relationships, etc) don't stop the drinking.
Because of the way c2h5oh is handled in the brain of an alcoholic, that's why an alcoholic can't touch alcohol. It's not personal failings or
Of course, there's a little more to the story (addictive personality, etc.) but my point is that you don't know you are an alcoholic until you start
drinking and can't stop.
And stopping and keeping dry can be very hard, hence support groups. Some people get help with AA, others find religion keeps them in line.
Whaaa, sounds like you've been writing your Manual for Life. You know, funny thing about forgiveness, it doesn't matter if the other person accepts
it or not (that's up to them how they deal with it); forgiveness is good for the forgiver.
I don't think crow fits. Try Raven. I love Ravens (ok so they eat baby desert tortoises, but that's another story) They're a beautiful bird; have
you ever heard the wings of one flying by?
Hey, what's on her plate? I must have missed that at the buffet table! Excuse me, I just have to find it.
