Drinking is boring. I am not talking about booze. This is not another tedious anti-alcohol piece. I love booze, and the primary reason I do is that alcohol in drinks makes them not boring. What’s boring is the very act of drinking. I find it a dull chore, and I have a tendency to do without until thirst compels me. I dislike most soft drinks. Water, fizzy drinks, fruit juices (too intense, too... fruity), teas and infusions... coffee is okay because it is bitter and at least a little intoxicating. But mostly: give me alcohol or give me death.
