hopefully they'll sleep it off

Now I know I'm on vacation.

Truck full of drunken persons being loud while pregnant maybe-spouse comes down to glare, and unpleasant language is used (by the drunken persons, at length, and for no reason I can discover). Y'all, I wish I could describe it better, but I'm trying to pretend I'm not here. I get embarrassment by proxy, and also, drunken people tend to not care if you are not of their group if they see you and I'm so not in the mood to deal. I grew up around melancholy drunks, aggressive drunks, sleepy drunks, and happy drunks; I know my drunks and the methodology of handling. I am not feeling the desire to exercise my skills right now.

...and someone just sat on the horn like a lifestyle choice. *winces*

The things is, I don't understand this kind of drunk, honestly. Let me quote.

[personal profile] seperis: A pregnant-maybe-spouse came down to glare.
[personal profile] scy: ....
[personal profile] scy: good grief people
[personal profile] scy: get drunk in private
[personal profile] scy: quietly
[personal profile] scy: and then cuddle other people
[personal profile] scy: and sleep
[personal profile] seperis: YES
[personal profile] seperis: That is drunkenness!
[personal profile] seperis: Drunk in private, love your neighbor,, cuddle up with people, maybe some making out.
[personal profile] seperis: Why is this hard?
[personal profile] scy: IDEK

Further note: my aunt has apparently been working up to questioning me about my sexuality for a while now, as it came out tonight in an impressively subtle turn of conversation, and I didn't guess where it was going until we were already there. That was a genuine surprise. For all her faults--and she has many, and she has reason for some of them developing as well, and she hasn't had an easy life--she's very hard to shock, because there's very little she hasn't done and even less she doesn't want to. When she was younger, she was singer in a band that toured the country; she told me about performing in Chicago in her early twenties, the days of driving between cities and towns in the early seventies, well before I was born.

Oh thank God, the drunken people are gone so now all I can hear is the ocean.

smudgy drunken makeouts in the privacy of one's own home (or someone else's home) are a lovely part of live. even when i don't have them myself, i like hearing about other people having them. i like that they exist.

so, like. when you could have that, why would you not get it? idk.

amazing thing about alcohol: it impairs judgement. no, really, it's this whole problem.

sounds like your aunt is cool.

I suspect whatcha got there are Drunken Rebels, so there will be no quiet snuggle-times for these guys. These are people who are trapped working at some crap job where they have to eat a lot of shit and get taken advantage of by The Man but still have to tow the line (think: doing shifts at Walmart for crap pay and no bennies, because 20 hours of "overtime" doesn't count towards getting benefits.) So when they're on their own time, they drink and Are Rebels, By God. This entails lots of leaning on horns and a-whoopin' and a-hollarin', and if you don't like it WELL KISS MY ASS, I'M A REBEL AND GOT MY RIGHTS AND I CAN DO WHAT I LIKE, WOOO-HOOOOOO!!! In other words, my cousins on my father's side of the family.
