The old-timer and the new kid, on a twelve step call,  arrived at the cave mid morning. Their intended convert lived there.  His “home” was located deep in a hollow in the mountains of West Virginia. The county disposal site was his front yard.

The man they had come to talk with was already drunk. The old-timer was having a difficult time convincing him to quit drinking. Turning to the new kid he said “You talk to him.”

The new kid, turning to their target, said “You realize it you don’t quit drinking you will lose all this.”







  1. Danny, Hilarious. 😀 You really shouldn’t tell a man who has nothing that he’ll lose it. 🙂 The boy needs to observe and learn a bit more.Well written with great humor. 🙂 — Susan


  2. Dear Danny,

    I used to live in a cramped room with Confusion and Pain….

    This was a great story. When I got to the last line I broke out laughing and immediately read it again. Your deadpan humor struck just the right nerve. Very well done.
