And the amazing thing was the rapidity with which it all took place.
I never in my life saw anyone sober up so quickly, and then, once the crisis has been dealt with, I never in my life saw anyone go back to being so drunk so quickly.
It really was uncanny. I looked around for Allen Funt, but he wasn't there. I think he might be dead, come to think of it.
Anyway, I really do like to feel useful. It's all a matter of perspective, of course. What to one person is an obvious manipulation, a blatant advantage being taken, to another person - my lovely self in this case - it's nothing more than an opportunity to feel useful. These opportunities are especially welcome because I never thought they'd happen again.
HatGirl says that I should stop defining myself by what I mean to others. My response to that is that I can't think of a better measurement.
I'm just rambling now. I went to Denny's after we left Jack's, and I thought it was a lot later than it was. So now I'm wired because it's only 2:16 instead of 5:16.
If time flies when you're having fun, I guess that means it drags when you're miserable?
I didn't think I was miserable. I thought I was in a pretty good mood - it's the feeling useful thing - but I guess I was wrong. Maybe I was so miserable that I somehow looped back into a happy place.
