“Need a drink, get a shot.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs Of The Week

Best Six-01 May 17-23It has been said that beer preceded bread. That is not far from impossible since fermented beverages have existed from as early as the Neolithic period. And as this week’s best memoirs reveal, we think a lot about our liquid infusions. Our libations can keep us warm, keep us open, keep us true. Some Sixers see drinking as a wild pleasure (“Whiskey’s a massage in a bottle.”) or a way to console (“When you’re gone, I shoot tequila.”). For others, drinking is a perfect metaphor, painting a perfect picture (“My reflection is a pathetic drunk.”). -Gilmarie Brioso
