July 2013: Ice Cream for Everyone
I’m currently the manager of a halfway house in Memphis. We have a great group of guys here, most of whom are staying sober. About two weeks ago, a new guy got drunk and couldn’t understand why we were insisting that he leave. I told him that the place is called a sober house. “If we let you stay, we’ll have to change the name to “drunk house!” Anyway, there is a vast amount of fun about it all. I get to be of service to the guys in early recovery who live here. But I really think I’m the one who’s learning the most.
