A proper drink

I was in a coffee shop today where I witnessed a couple discussing whether or not they should attend a party next weekend. 

"I think we should go. I haven't had a drink in more than a month," said the girl. 

"What about that half a bottle of wine you drank last night whilst watching TV?" said the guy, his face screwed up in mock confusion.

"You know what I mean - a proper drink". 

It's easy to see how this failure to recognise reality - self-delusion - can be dangerous. 

Marco Tempest is right. The biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
