Corona

by German Voodoo

I'd a choice, between the drinking and the children. My wife - bless her - said, "The children can't stand to see you drunk all the time." I was hardly ever drunk, as in Really Pissed Over the Cliff Sopping Drunk, but a buzz flew my eyelids all the live long day. The children, beautiful children, not drunks, didn't seem to mind - or maybe they did and I couldn't notice. Eh, Corona's no pleasure like Christmas Morning. Cheers to alcoholics everywhere, they're foreign and French.

6S

German Voodoo is 15 years old and lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Nice writing, Voodoo, but the mom in me forces me to give you a little lecture, just in case you believe that excessive drinking is AOK. Listen carefully:

It's NOT OK! Drunks act like idiots. They are cruel to their loved ones. They do dangerous, despicable things. (I will spare you the 4th, 5th, and 6th reasons for now, so you won't think I am overreacting...)

Really excellent work. I truly enjoyed it. Keep exploring your unique style.

I remember writing stuff like this when i was a teenager many, many years ago (maybe not as well as German Voodoo) and this appears to me to be a strong young person trying to deal with a home life afflicted with alcoholism. I could be wrong, but if i'm not, I commend you on how you, German, appear to be dealing with this. I found writing helped get the pain and anguish out. I was determined not to be like them (my parents) but lo and behold alcohol got ahold on me but i'm sober 20+years. Good luck... sunny

Eh, man. Werklich nette 6s Junge. Ich mag deine Schriftstellen sehr. Warum heissen Sie Deutsche Voodoo?

I only know enough Yiddish to interpret the German the guy above me is using. It's goes something like he enjoys your writing. Anyway it's a positive review never fear.
