My Life At Bennigan's.
This is a picture of me taken somewhere around 2001. It's me in a DX shirt next to my girlfriend at the time Debby and our friend Kendra. We're at a Bennigan's restaurant there, the one that used to be next to my old bookstore in Arizona. After work most of us would walk down there and close the bar. Everyone knew who I was. Everyone knew my name and liked me. They're cheer my name when I walked in. And most nights, since we knew everyone, we'd all go to the head bartender's house and drink some more and smoke out until the wee hours of the morning.
I was drunk back then, sure. But I was also careless and happy and free. I had no responsibilities, no bills, and I could do whatever I wanted to do.
I loved my life back then. I miss it so much.
