how did i ever get this old?
already 8 years retired,
my dad is 85 and still dancing,
my son turned 26 on my 5 year sober date,
my favorite aunt still asks if i'm in AAA;
i have to laugh and say, "that's a car club!"
never imagined i would be living in
the country, being a city boy all my life.
after 33 years of working, the last 15
bouncing in and out of recovery, i
lose my part-time job after 5 years
of sobriety; ironic!
a drink can still look attractive at times;
but i have no desire to start this process
all over again.
i find myself urging those who can drink,
to be wary of their amount and frequency;
and always have a designated driver.
