If I lived in the era of Prohibition I’d love it. I’d revel in it just like the characters of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby”. “The Great Gatsby” was one of the few books I read in high school that I truly enjoyed. I recall dissecting the characters, the significance of the debauchery and the unraveling of Gatsby. As I re-read this book as a 38 year old what I had previously viewed with disdain I now viewed with awe: the decadence, the idealism, the excess, I want in!
Thanks to Yono for one night I drank in excess, danced with all the beautiful ladies and men, laughed till my belly hurt and partied like its 1922.
