The name for this post might be a little obscure. Maybe this well help… Sound it out, slowly. No? What day of the week is today? Still no help? Try this: It’s an alternate spelling of ‘Friday’.
Every Friday sees an Open Bar at the company where i work. At 5pm the reception area is lined with all of the whiskey, gin, vodka, and beer you can handle. Coworkers and customers are encouraged to drink up and, after the clients leave, my colleagues head out to the nearest bar never to be seen sober again.
Not only did i participate in this orgy of alcohol every Friday night for nearly 20 years, it also played a role in my divorce and was certainly one of the main reasons i’ve been working there so long. My previous record at one company was 2 years–that place didn’t have free booze every Friday.
Tomorrow, i will wake up sober. i will not have a hangover. i will be present for my new wife. i will be capable of giving quality time and of myself to my children.
Because tonight, for the second time in my recovery, i went to a meeting. FridAA.
