I was sailing down I-65 this afternoon, running cruise drink options through my old brain, when I decided I wanted a cocktail at the rest area. I haven't had a drink in five days but I always drink at R/A's, so I called Daniel.

I asked him to find me a liquor store off the highway around Birmingham, AL. and within minutes my text beeper was beeping. It turned out perfect, on and off the highway quickly, and then proceeded to run into a Birmingham traffic nightmare due to a wreck down the road.

Daniel and I have a great friendship, he don't judge me when i fall off the wagon and I don't judge him when he drops by and drinks while I don't.

I've got a great spot, ate a sandwich, and cheers to my friend back in Tennessee. At Shelby and Andy's tomorrow morning!
