First Aide Readily Available

In case a snake ever comes in the office

If you want to know the truth, I never sit down at this desk to write a sentence without a bottle of whiskey within my reach.

It’s always just behind the computer, between a Roget’s Thesaurus and an American Heritage Dictionary. Can you see it? A pint of Wellington straight whiskey, 100 proof, bottled in bond in Louisville, Kentucky. If a snake ever slithers out from under the bookcase and bites me on the shin, I can grab that bottle and start treatment immediately.
