    Congratulations.

    “Congratulations!” The word makes me uncomfortable. I have not done anything in my life worthy of a congratulations. I have never climbed Mt. Everest. I have never written a Nobel Prize book. And I haven’t found a cure for cancer. I understand the concept – congratulations is a “well wish.” People want the best for you. “Congratulations on your Bachelors degree from K-State! We’re so proud of you!” Thank you. But all I did was stay sober enough for 4 nights out of the week. And actually I’m still drunk from the night before because of this thing called Thursday night 99 cent jack and cokes. Did I just slur that? “Congratulations on your wedding!” Thanks!…
