Through a Shot Glass

by Ethan Hawke

We were leaving, but decided on one more for the road. We downed our shots in sync. I kept my glass at eye level and started looking through it. Everyone close got further away. I liked it. No one asked why I did it, which was good, because I hate explaining myself.
