Literati…Seen here is Silicon Valley. I fail to understand its significance in Billy Holder’s second entry into our Wing Nuts contest. Perhaps you can enlighten me.

As for Samuel Clemens, I love his quote: “Whenever I get the urge to exercise, I lay down until the feeling goes away.”
Here is Clemens lying down thinking the feeling will go away.
And here is Billy Holder’s attempt to get that very same feeling back!

“Sometimes I just can’t decide what that aroma pouring out of the glass is Sammy. Good or bad?” I say this as I look into the mirror above the kaleidoscope of potable poisons. Staring back at me is a mixture of memoir; convulsing bile filled hatreds, responsibilities bereft of actions never to be repeated, revelries and copulate filled victories lost in the dungeons of today’s melodrama.
My stomach spasms, readying itself for what my mind enthusiastically convinces it will be a joy ride into a sublime destiny. I then push back the memories of those who claim to love me to drink with those who surely hate me. As

No one knows where she’s from or what her nationality is. The sailors know her as Bunny, marines call her Brandy and the flyboys call her only when she’s finished blowing them off back into their hot air balloons.
“I’ll just have to wing it,” she says when they claim she will miss them while they’re deployed.

Sammy responds by telling me, “Good resolutions Billy; next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”
I laugh and ask if he’s got enough for another round? Sammy barks back, “Lack of money is the
root of all evil. And stop calling me Sammy, its Mark, God damnit!”
