You mean no razor, or no vertical smile?


I'm fond of vertical smiles who know how to wield a razor.

Re-reading old posts, I realized I forgot to post here the poem that closes Dale Pendell's chapter on absinthe in Pharmako-poeia:

If you are sick, it will cure you.
If you are depressed, it will ease your soul -
If you are smitten, desirous to touch
the one so long beyond your grasp,
it will give you words
and long green hour, together, to speak them.

Practice makes perfect, so be careful what you practice…

Grandpa always said of whiskey;
"Makes you well when you're ill, ill when you're well".
