I just woke up a few moments ago and, judging from the clumsiness of my stumbling about the apartment, I am not on a healthy, working relationship with reality, yet. Either that, or I’ve been managing to drink beer in my sleep, again, and I’m just drunkenly dreaming all this. It’s hard to tell at my age. Perhaps the acid test is to read some political news. If it seems to make sense then I’ve been drinking in my sleep again, right? I mean, how should I test my working relationship with reality?
