When drinking, it’s important to hit the sweet spot, and stay there. You’ve got to get in it and maintain it cautiously. Much like fucking, if you come into it with too much gusto, you’re likely to go over the top too quickly and look foolish. A good buzz is a wonderful thing that makes everything sing to you. It’s also just a few more drinks away from a sloppy and useless state. You don’t want that. You want to hit that buzz perfectly, and then maintain it. Water it gently, like you would a houseplant. You don’t want to drown it. You want to water it evenly and put it in the window for the neighbors to admire.
