Hippy: “Barkeep, A Rum & Coke.”

Some things just speak to me: 

“Most people who deal in words don’t have much faith in them and I am no exception-especially big ones like ‘Happy’ and ‘Love’ and ‘Honest’ and ‘Strong’. They are too elusive and far too relative when you compare them to sharp, mean little words like ‘Punk’ and ‘Cheap’ and ‘Phony’. I feel at home with these, because they’re scrawny and easy to pin, but the big ones are tough and it takes either a priest or a fool to use them with any confidence.”
