Today I have an overwhelming urge to get drunk. Happy-drunk, not melancholy drunk. I want to dance and drink and get something or other out of my system. But I don’t have anyone to do it with. Last year, I know, I could have called up any number of people to get sloshed with and go on some haphazard adventure or other. This year, I don’t have anyone around me like that. And yes, it’s annoying to want to cause mayhem and have no-one around to do it with. But it’s also nice to know that I have friends who look out for me.
