Interlude: The party

Eleven bottles of wine.
Three cases of beer.
One mickey of white rum.
Half a bottle of pastis.
Twenty-four samosas.
Two pounds of pakoras.
One joint.
Seven packs of cigarettes.
One broken wine glass.

Oh, and a hell of a hangover.

It was good to be among friends. The last left at seven in the morning, dazed and squinting against the light of dawn. Moments later, I fell into a deep, warm sleep. I dreamt well.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes, and for the endearing confessions that accompanied them. And, as an aside to A.: patience…
