Hmmmm lol I’m glad i was too deep into the tequila to remember Shakespeare; I’m also glad those days are gone. lol

Now it couldn't have been that bad! Lol, really? Thank you so much!
Ha! Red flags, for sure. However, had it not been for the third (or fourth) drink, I would not have met my wife.

The majority of you are pretty cool, I must admit. Thanks for the smile, Keith!
This was a fun poem, void of the usual pity party. However, being someone who frequented, and attended in my younger days, might I suggest finding someplace different.

Thanks for the fun read. No criticism intended. :)
I suppose I find myself boring people with philosophy or string theory. I am sure we carry things from exes to the table as well. Sometimes it's hard not to.

13 meager words, really? (Well 14 words if you do not use the contraction) Nowadays, I rarely drink in a group of "guys" these past several, several years. "Back in the day," when younger I did so. But even then I got tired of all the bullshit talking, the primate pounding of the chest, the trash talking, their latest conquest of the opposite sex, married or not . . . so I suppose this is not really a review of this write, but maybe a cautionary tale, if you will, of the friends you choose to be with. Even so, it gave me pause to remember I escaped a bullet in my youth. 13 meager words, eh?
