The Argument Against Flying Sober
A friend and I once spent the better part of a year in an substance induced bender,
Much of which I, and he has forgotten, and for good reason. I doubt either one of us would want to remember 80% of what occurred, and what we do makes us laugh...When it is that we have flashes of the outright lunacy of which we partook...Now with that in mind, take into consideration that I would do it all over again in a heart beat, seeing as the older I get I have fewer and fewer of those left, so if ever given the opportunity, I would spend one of them or the rest of them to forget another 3/4 of a 365.
Now as to the argument against flying sober it is an indisputable one, which I suppose takes away the idea that it is indeed an argument at all...And viciously turns it into a monologue of my opinion.
Why one should never fly sober: It is just plain fun not to. I cant count the number of times that I have arrived at the wrong gate, ticket agent, airline, terminal and even the absolutely wrong concourse. Traveling is suppose to be an adventure, that's why man travels....How can one possibly interject adventure by arriving at the correct gate on time with boarding pass in hand?
I say its impossible to have it both ways.
One might argue that if one is to intoxicated to get to their gate they would miss the plane and therefore miss....Well, miss the plane..
I say fuck them! Non-adventurous bastards! Live Life for one second, get out of the Cog of the Real and Step in to a alcoholic blur that will change your life if only for a few hours...Or in my case as its been weeks at a time...But do something, anything that proves your alive.
Do you really think that if the plane is falling from the sky, the fact that you are stone cold sober is going to make a difference? Drunk or Sober your going to Shit your pants,
I say do it drunk, at least you can laugh at the fact that when they peel you off the side of that building, there will be a overpowering bourbon stench that might make the EMT puke in your now empty skull
