Sober in the District: The Diary of a Buzzkill

Once a supervisor gave me a gift card to some wine and spirits store that was close to our office.

And then I started doing stand-up comedy in the D.C.'s clubs and open mic nights. They say the drunker the audience gets, the funnier you are. I thought President Bush had sworn off the spirits, but he was still the funniest-sounding guy in D.C. Plus, my "a Muslim walks into a bar" bit seemed to work so well.
