Insane? Quite Possibly - The Man of 10,000 Lives

Sep. 7th, 2005 09:03 am Insane? Quite Possibly

So my life isn't falling down around my ears any longer, and I am still going drinking--it's just for fun now, as opposed to going simply for getting totally sauced.  Oh, that's still going to happen, I'm positive, but the whole reason that got me there in the first place is different.  Like I said, this is for fun.

I never thought I would see the day when I become a social drinker.  The two things just don't go along together.  That's Jack's thing, not mine.  Though, I wonder if part of the reason why he started (not counting when he was a teen, because I bet he was one of those people who drank as a teenager) was out of depression.  One thing I'll never know the answer to, but it's something I cannot help wondering. 

I owe hieroglyphchick another call after this.  Something fun to look forward to...oh yes.

You know me far too well Daniel. It's scary, almost. *smirks, tosses a kooshball at*

You mean I'm right? Well, I've known you for seven years. There's a reason I know you fairly well. *catches and tosses it back*

Yes, you're right. On both counts. I was a beer-drinking teenager...and aside from a few sessions of private drinking to get blitzed, social drinking somehow manages to help depression. A little.

You've known me for longer than seven years, you rock-collecting spacemonkey. *smirks, catches the ball and tosses it back*

Ah....That's kind of interesting. *knits brows* Kind of wouldn't want to be right about things like that, though.

Well, ten years total, but there is an asterisk there. I met you in 1995, but I didn't see you again until mid-1997, during the second mission to Abydos. Then from there, there was some time, and between 2002 and 2003 I was away, so...it is seven years, but a little more than that, too. *catches and does an underhanded toss*

Yeah, well it's not like you can choose to be wrong. *shrugs*

...damned nitpicker. You just have to crunch those numbers, don't you? *laughs, catches and tosses with a spin*

No, but sometimes one can hope and prove themselves wrong by working his or theories around in circles until none of it makes sense.

I'm just being realistic. Yep. *nods, takes a few steps back to catch and then tosses back a fly ball*
