I am no longer a young man.  I’ve been aware of this for some time but it is occasionally driven home to me.

Like now.

Two beery nights and I’m a floppy, husk of a man.  Two nights with too little sleep and too much beer and I look like the long-dead corpse of a wizened nonagenarian who died from some sort of wasting, insomniac condition and was buried in a cardboard coffin, in a bog, for one hundred and forty-six years before being reanimated by some weird, zombification process involving sucking all fluids from the body and replacing them with Nutella and dust.

I feel almost exactly like that too.

It’s a young man’s game, this beering.
