GlossAAry Update – Share

Just to let y’all know i’ve updated the GlosAAry with another defintion:


"There's something I'd like to get off your chest."

“Sharing” is the action of spilling your guts when you open your heart during an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

Depending on the size of the meeting, the amount of time you have to share may be limited. You can only share once during a meeting, other speakers are not allowed to interrupt the speaker who is sharing, and commenting on a previous speaker’s share when you are sharing (see “cross talk”) is frowned upon.

“A Share” is the egoism wisdom, anger danger, or worth-shit worship you spit up when you are at your most vulnerable in front of the dozens of other ex drunkards saving your life with the life lines of words you cast with your real voice.

From Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous:

The only currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool.


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.
