Oktoberfest 2011 – An outsider’s perspective:
I was excited to see the Oktoberfest video online yesterday. I saw an opportunity to live vicariously through my friends in order to escape the maleficent hand of grad school term papers and oppressive loneliness. After all, a year ago that was me, drinking my way through the oppressive Fresno heat one delicious brew at a time until I could barely walk, let alone search for the ever allusive drunkest sailor at the shit storm.
Now I was relegated to the side lines, to watch as Roger and Greg drink to their hearts content and/or their mother’s mini-vans. As I watched, I laughed, I cried and I reminisced, which ultimately resulted in a jealous rage-inspired suicide attempt… Anyways, this is a good one.
