Emily Levine:

I am a recovering narcissist. I thought narcissism was about self-love till someone told me there is a flip side to it. It is actually drearier than self-love; it is unrequited self-love.

Rat to Bartender:  Hey, is this place new?  Bartender:  Yes.  It's a high-end whisky bar.  I recommend a Scotch whiskey distilled at least thrice and aged at least six years in oak barrels and served in a tulip glass to preserve the aroma.  Rat:  Me want bear.  Rat turns to Pig:  I love to put snobs in their place.

That’s pretty much how I feel when persons around me start talking about “craft beers.” With beers, after the first one, they all taste alike, anyhoo.

Besides, any Scotch, even Olde Rottgutt, is better than every anything else.
