"Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage." -- Woody Allen
The beverage is the most powerful force in the universe. The beverage has been known to help create friendship where there had been none and it has been known to destroy friendship where it had longed been assumed unassailable. It has made fortunes what they were and has torn great personages down like a rushing river through a paper dam. Water, beer, wine, cola, coffee, tea, and hard liquor: these are the names of the gods who move the world.
My thought this evening, as I'm about to retire to a good book: not only would a week without beverages be enough to kill the stoutest of men, but one could only wonder the sheer boredom faced in their absence.
Here's something to 'read' while you are enjoying a beverage of your own.
