Hi everyone,

Yes, my wonderful granddaddy was a liquor-drinking man, too.

He drank by himself and did not spend any more money on liquor than it took for him to drink, get drunk, sober up, and eat, and repeat the routine for three days, at a time, during crop harvesting season.

Granddaddy had a highly-controlled liquor-drinking habit. For some reason, that my family does not know, Granddaddy’s liquor drinking binges took place, during cotton-picking season, from August to October.

Black men, here in 2016, if you drink alcoholic beverages, control your habit and this can be accomplished, if you buy liquor for only yourself, drink alone and only on weekends, and work efficiently and productively on your jobs five days a week.

This conversation means that for you to do that, you must love your own “company”, a wonderful attribute, in anyone, and your family. Consequently, you are confident men who do not depend on others to drink with you to have fun or enjoy the taste and feeling derived from beverages. In this 21st century, there are a lot of good wines that you can drink and make you drunk, and, therefore, you would improve upon my granddaddy’s good way of drinking alcoholic beverages, and, if you crave always drinking some form of alcoholic beverage, you have a deficiency in your life, and I ask you to correct it. As you recall, Granddaddy didn’t walk around with “stinking” alcoholic beverages on his breath, instead, he drank, two or three weekends out of a year, alone, and refrain from supplying others’ liquor habit.

Beloved men, keep your breath clean, except those few times a year you drink, and you will look like and feel like a man. Yes, a man who always has to drink is a “pussy cat” and not a man.
