The old-timer and the new kid, on a twelve step call, arrived at the cave mid morning. Their intended convert lived there. His “home” was located deep in a hollow in the mountains of West Virginia. The county disposal site was his front yard.
The man they had come to talk with was already drunk. The old-timer was having a difficult time convincing him to quit drinking. Turning to the new kid he said “You talk to him.”
The new kid, turning to their target, said “You realize it you don’t quit drinking you will lose all this.”
