A Sober, Abstinent New Year’s Eve

by Bill Brenner on January 1, 2011

I used to revel in New Year’s Eve excess. I’d get blasted on vodka and “head-wreckers” in my Revere basement. I’d binge on Chinese food. I’d wake up promising God I’d never do that again, then I’d promptly break the promise.

Last night I stayed sober and abstinent. The food was weighed out as usual. I drank coffee. The niece slept over. Erin introduced Sean to “Dr. Who.”

Duncan read his cousin a bedtime story.

Life doesn’t suck.

Happy New Year.
