third beer

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

She was the third beer. Not the first one, which the throat receives with almost tearful gratitude; nor the second, that confirms and extends the pleasure of the first. But the third, the one you drink because it’s there, because it can’t hurt, and because what difference does it make.

- Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon, 1977

In drinking the third beer, you might throw up. Negating the tearful gratitude and extended pleasure you got in drinking the first and second beer. :)
