Happy Friday everyone!
Let’s give a huge shout out to the Philadelphia Eagles who won the Super Bowl last Sunday! But.. uhh.. the night of the big win, Broad street was a “shit show” to say the least. Have you seen the videos? Let’s put the Super Bowl win aside for a second – that night the city looked eerily similar to my alcoholism run rampant. Each person seemed to mimic a piece of my addiction. Except my life was a desperate plea disguised as a celebration.
- The people who lit a Christmas tree on fire? My life literally looked like a torched Christmas tree walking down the street.
- The people looting gas stations? I would have stolen your wallet and payed for your dinner.. with your money. But it wasn’t all destruction and damage:
- There was a guy who proposed in the middle of the street. I think I literally hit on everyone that had short hair and a face.
- And lastly, those people eating actual horse feces? Well, I don’t remember everything I ate while I was blacked out, but I know I ate a lot of Taco Bell.
Thank God I don’t have to go back there again. How did you celebrate the super bowl?
Have a safe and sober weekend!
