Yeah. There was a lot of commentary in early sobriety about my eyes and how much less yellow they got.
Even when I look tired and bloodshot you can tell I’m sober. I went to this great party over the summer where there was some drinking and pot smoking going on. I was sure I would be the only sober one, but I wasn’t. Funny how we found eachother. I knew by sober buddy for years but we weren’t especially close, but we bonded that night. We got tired and looked tired but we didn’t look drunk or stoned. We did make a big deal of assuming this Al Bundy position in our camping chairs and watch people be silly while commenting on how languid we felt.
People called us out on it. “You two are trying to fake a drunk look.” We were like “No way man, I don’t have to fake looking comfortable and tired in a chair that is like a tiny hammock. If I was drunk and doing this I’d be asleep by now.”
