I lost

As I said in a previous post I was thinking of taking on some more responsibilities.
I was running for president of a local group that I am a member of.

I lost. I lost by very few votes.

The guy I was running against did some things I thought were sleezy but that's politics. I took it like a man shook his hand and went on with my life.

I didn't ask for a recount.
I went home and checked my mail.
I poured a pretty stiff shot of Jack Daniels Single barrel, opened a bottle of Anchor Steam and lit a cigar.
I turned on my TV and went to Sirius music channel which is now carried by the Dish Network.

I probably would have done exactly the same if I had won but I would be in a much better mood.

I am sure that in the morning I will find a way to convince myself that it was all for the best and maybe that will prove to be the truth.
Right now however I need another shot of Jack.
