Why I take only one
« on: December 31, 2019, 01:26:53 am »
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?  (from Song of Solomon, by Toni Morrison; a larger context is here; use ctrl-f to locate the sentence)

I like extending pleasure where it can be extended but that's how I wander into the territory of the third beer.
