I’m No Hemingway

Excerpt from my upcoming memoirs, “I’m No Hemingway”. “After drinking such an incredible quantity of other people’s liquor, a normal man would be unable to stand. But I stood, as my father had taught me, in the center of the horse track on race day, not caring if she looked at me or just drank more gin with Scott and Zelda. The old Indian, who carried my gun on hunting safari, spoke to me about fishing, in Spanish. But all of this, like women, was a mere distractions. The important thing was to be a man, a man’s-man’s man. And to this end I was holding a sword fish, while waiting my turn to step into the boxing ring.”

I believe I may have read too much Hemingway, also, most of this never happened to me.
