From a conversation yesterday evening with my kid brother John:

John: So, what socially insular thing are you doing tonight?

Me: Oh, probably the usual: playing the “Self-quarantine Drinking Game.”

John: I don’t know that one. What are the rules?

Me:

John:

Me: Rules?

    I have just received my order of cigars via my trusty UPS guy who stayed safely away ( even after I offered squirts of 70% alc. Purell) as he signed my name via coronavirus proxy. I’d usually head down to my local Rocky Patel and hang out and gadfly with a stogie or 2 and make my buys there, but alas…..I’m stuck in my mancave….

    I have heard that the agave plant can fight a flu virus.

    I always drink tequila or mezcal when I worry I am about to get sick, cold or fever or flu.

    I have been drinking tequila or mezcal during the quarantine.

    Trying to cut back on alcohol. Primarily for blood sugar and financial reasons. Shelter in place is making both exercise and cutting back on alcohol difficult.

    prohibition made Al Capone famous.

    prohibition created more harm than good. noble intentions yet great harm, how many times have we seen this movie?

    keep things simple: protect individual liberty and property, everything else is a distant second

    I’m a very modest drinker, one glass of bourbon four or five nights a week, so it doesn’t cost me much, but I hear you about the exercise part. I’ve got weights and a treadmill here at home, but it isn’t the same and I took most of March off. Time I got back on it.
