Last night ...

I had a bartending gig last night up at Northwestern University. There were 8 bartenders, 2 each on a keg of beer at 4 stations (it was a party for the graduating seniors, a "beer tasting") with different beers. Needless to say, it was a lot of heavy lifting to get set up and then just non-stop beer pouring for 2 hours.

Part of me really resented all these fresh-faced young people going out into the world with brand-new degrees. I really wanted to tell them that 30 years ago I had just completed my Freshman year there, and that having a degree from a good college didn't really mean shit in the crap game that is life. Look at me. 30 years later I'm back there pouring beer.

I'd make a good graduation speaker ... "Watch your back. Get everything in writing. Trust nobody."

Ain't I just the biggest stinking pile of putrid failure you've ever seen?

It sure looks that way from here.
