My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion,
and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, “Do you know him?”
“Yes”, she sighed.
“He’s my old boyfriend.”
I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn’t been sober since.
“My God!” I said, “Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?”
