We Are All “In The Same Boat”

From the juiced-box and dedicated to In The Same Boat, a guy who’s seen my True Colors: Cyndi Lauper – True Colors

i have a good friend…

No, seriously! Is that so hard to believe!? His nic is “In The Same Boat” and we met through a mutual drinker’s blog. i’ve always liked ITSB because he was a hardcore drinker and now he’s quit completely and he gives SOLID advice for those who are interested in quitting. He’s like the Internet’s International AA sponsor. What’s impresses me most about him is that he can give advice to those who need it In The Words That They Understand.

He left a comment on one of my posts about how he didn’t give a rat’s ass about what i’d written but wanted to know where he could deposit photos like the one above. So i posted it.

And i’m calling him out. The Internet and, more importantly, The Bar None needs him and his brand of honesty. So i’ve sent him a request to be a contributor on this blog. He can post this kind of picture, comments, he can call me out on my shit and he can talk to us drinkers about the shit we need to hear.

Will he pick up the gauntlet? Put up or shut up?

Boat, my Brother, now you can influence what happens here! The Bar None needs you!

And far all you peeps readin’, be a friend, write a comment in his support.

  1. Ok, Al. I’m in. Funny…Just this morning I was thinking ADS’s blog was getting a little boring since he’s cured and all. I was even going to suggest he take off to Vegas and score a 1.75L bottle of vodka, some blow, and put up a video of his encounters with some hookers. Then we could save him all over again. But now…I have a new outlet for my snarky comments. Teach me how to do this! –ITSB.

    • Awesome! i’m not sure how to do it, myself. i’ll check with Miss Demeanor this afternoon and send you a private e-mail to fill you in on the dirt. Should be tons of fun; i’m looking forward to it!

  2. LOL @ Rodney. 😀 Rodney is a funny guy.

    Yes, I want the boat to float! 🙂 Go boat, go! Allez le Boat!

    • I hate to sink the boat, but there ain’t not such animal as “cured”. Addiction is a cancer that goes into remission, but never let down your guard.

    – My first thought was “yippee!”

    – My second thought was “damn, I can’t think of anything funny to say….”

      • I had a bizarre flashback to that old blonde joke about trying to correct her typing on the computer by using white-out on the screen….

        Hmm, anyway, if you need help I’m sure I can help. PM me at some point and I’ll guide you through it if required!

      • i actually had a coworker (who wasn’t blonde, btw) who needed clean, white paper. So she took a sheet off a stack next to the photocopier and made ten copies of it…rather than just taking ten sheets off the stack directly.

        i think we got it figured out, though. i sent ITSB a message with instructions and he got back to me that he now can write on the blog, and just needs inspiration…
