2 year ago I would have probably gotten my night shift at work covered so that I could go to an Ecipse Party.
2 years ago I would have missed this once in a lifetime opportunity with Suzi Dunn.
2 years ago I would have gotten so shit- faced that by the time totality happened, I was too busy "partying" to even stop and experience it.
I may have looked up. I may have seen the darkness, but it wouldn't have registered with me how truly an awe-inspiring moment it was.
Then I would continue on about my drankin and smokin until I ended up face down in the toilet with some poor soul holding back my hair.
And then the next day, all that would be remembered is the constant nausea and headache.
AND THE SELF HATE FOR MISSING THE TOTAL ECLIPSE.
Sobriety, you are beautiful. I WILL PROTECT YOU WITH EVERYTHING I HAVE! #17months
