"A early lesson hard learned"


Alcohol poisoning at the tender age of ten?

On A local villagers Wedding (svadba) Day, most everyone was at the church for the traditional Mariovski ceremony.

My buddy (drugar) and I snuck off and forced our way into the basement of the groom’s home. What a wonderful sight, wall to wall food and there stood all lined up like soldiers (partizni) were one liter bottles of homemade whisky (rakja)...

We eagerly partook in a two hour binge that rendered me helpless and lifeless for the next three days...to the point of what the claimed near death.

... To this day I have a 2 drink personal tolerance level; I’ve been told I’m not much fun!
