Here’s to the quirky friends we all have.
I hope you have more quirky friends with each passing year. And may they color your life in ways you never thought possible.
Not me, of course, I want normal friends.
Friends that don’t embarrass me.
If you know me though, a funny Jesuit actually sounds right up my alley.
But this year I was with my friend Tom, an extremely funny Jesuit and sober alcoholic, who drank like a rat for years and smoked a little non-habit-forming marijuana on a daily basis. He also did amyl nitrate, although he adds that this was just to get to know people.
