During high school I had a job bussing tables at a local restaurant.
My boss was a very funny guy. Everyone enjoyed being around him and he was always entertaining.
In fact, looking back, I guess I could say that entertaining others was his life. Before he opened this restaurant he had been the head chef on a famous cruise liner.
Life is tough when you have an alcohol or drug addiction. He died at 58 years of age.
I recently wrote an article about alcohol addiction.
I remember my friend Vicki. She was president of Students Against Drunk Driving at my high school.
A few months before graduation she was hit and killed by a drunk driver.
A bit ironic.
Alcohol is a very addictive drug. If you know anyone like that or anyone that has had a lot of trouble brought into their life by alcohol you know exactly what I mean.
