A return to the old ways…

The song in the background is from the Final Fantasy X-2 piano collections. Memories of Light and Waves… such a beautiful song, and i WILL learn to play it over the next three years. such hopes…

The two bottles sat between us…

“Come on… just drink it.”

“I don’t know though… not drinking has probably been the greatest committment I’ve made over this past year. A whole… 369 days now, and I don’t know… I know it’s not a big deal but I’d still feel like I’m throwing something away. Hold on, lemme make a call…”

[Dialing… 630-687-****]

“Hey dude, were you sleeping?”

“No, but I was about to. Oh, did you do it yet?”

“I have the stuff… but I dunno… I don’t know if I should.”

“Well, think about it this way, if I were you, I’d drink if it I knew I could control myself. And considering how it’s been a whole year, I think you’ve already proven to yourself that you can.”

“Ah… oh okay… thanks. I’ll talk to you later”

[Ended call… 0:28]

“Okay fine… I’ll do it.”


I had completely forgotten the taste of Coca Cola… when I opened the bottles, it smelled so foreign… it was weird. I couldn’t believe where I was, what I was doing. But I did it. And did it bigtime…

Yep… all for me (the other two are in the fridge)
