A story inspired by this photo provided by Madison Woods.
Garvin swallowed the last of the rum and threw the bottle against the wall where it exploded into a million tiny pieces — just like his life.
I’m tired, and I’m lonely. The manhole! I could escape down there.
Last year he was manager of the development group at a prestigious software company. Life certainly throws some curves, doesn’t it? One gamble and he was done. Won $375. Everyone cheered. Bought a round for the bar.
Now? No job, no house, no wife. All I look forward to is the bottom of the next bottle.
