First Drink

Brother Kenneth has his first drink after lent ritual abstinence. From Ash Wednesday to Easter, no alcohol, until 8 PM, we counted the seconds, bottle of brandy raised and then that first hot flash of hard liquor. It's both practical and religious. It's practical to save money. It costs a lot to drink every day. It's cheaper to drink only during special occasions. It's religious to take spirits into the blood stream and to bathe the brain in distilled liquor. Hallelujah! This is something I can believe.
