I passed up stopping at the liquor store on Centre across from Neville because there was a guy begging for change in front of it and I can't buy alcohol in front of a begging person because of the guilt factor. So I ended up walking all the way to the NEW WINE AND SPIRITS SUPER STORE, basically a supermarket of alcohol, in the new shopping plaza by Whole Foods. It was an impressive display. The clerk, a managerial-looking man, asked for my ZIP code and I thought I gave it easily, but he seemed to think I was resistant, because he explained that the state was taking a survey, and I wouldn't get junk mail or anything. I thanked him and explained that if the state sent me junk mail that was addressed simply to my name and ZIP code, it would have a hard time finding me anyway. He did not laugh.
I drank alone while watching Christmas specials. Yes, eggnog. No, I'm not joking.
