I changed schools my 2nd year in college. During the first week there I walked across the street to a sandwich shop to get something to eat. As I walked into the place it seemed kind of dark and empty. That’s when it dawned on me that this wasn’t a sandwich shop but a bar. I confidently sat down on one of the stools and ordered a bottle of root beer. It was deliciously lonely.
