Once Over Lightly
ON THE TOPIC of drinking at home: If you can't quit the stuff, why not start a saloon in your own house? Be your only customer, and you won't need a license. Give your wife $20 to buy a gallon of booze and pay her 50Â¢ a drink for it. In four days, when the gallon is gone, she'll have $44 to put in the bank and $20 to buy another gallon. If you stick it out for ten years before dying of the snakes, your wife will have $40,150 on deposit--enough to bury you decently, bring up your children, pay for the house, marry a guy who doesn't drink, and forget she ever knew you.
