Welcome to the Drunken Mumbler…

A blog for Men, with facts, fiction, and mental health tips strewn in with rambling thoughts and a dose of bullshit. Everything here will not be completely coherent or without contradiction – that’s kinda’ the point. This is the examination toward an authentic life. Cheers.

Regret, Part 2

I have a slew of blog posts in various stages of completion and sitting down to determine which post to complete next, I was struck that I have a Regret 1 sitting out there without a Regret 2. So, here we go…   Recently I’ve given some thought to regret....

Absurdity pt.1 (if/then pt.2ish)

Absurdity is a concept in which I’d like to dive deeper.  We’re going to use the previous post about if/then self narratives to wade further. So here’s the clunky link to introduce absurdity as a concept: Take the thought of just needing to do X in order to do Y. We...
