James’s status showed a baggie of pills and a handle of Wild Turkey 101.

I texted: “Looks like you’re fixin’ to make some bad decisions.” 

“I make mistakes,” James replied. “Mistakes are more fun.” 

“Til the next day. LOL” 

“The next day’s named tomorrow,” James said, “and tomorrow never comes.”
