Feeling Old

Last Wednesday, I was sitting at Clark drinking my feelings away and peeling the label off my beer, looking around the bar, seeing all those young faces, unconcerned that one day they too will be old and filled with this emptiness. “Shit, I am totally shitfaced, I should probably go home…” It was at this point when I noticed that the label on my beer proclaimed its founding date, just like all beers before it. HOLY SHIT… 1445! THAT’S A LONG FUCKING TIME AGO.

That means that they got through decades where a real concern was wandering bands killing them all and taking their beer.

1445! That’s fucking old… How old? Well, my drunk mind asked that question…
