I know, it´s the first phrase of Ceasar´s " De bello gallico" - Of the gallic wars. Thus was my situation after last summer, there was me(sorry for being self centered again), my Gf. and Sam. Most of my spare free time I spend with her, as it should be, but Sam took his part too, mostly in inviting me to bars or parties. I got used to have an extended dinner as a layer for drinks, but I normally don´t do much in the booze department, other than Sam, whom I had to drive home w/embarrassing regularity. I like him nonetheless, though is nowhere near to my feelings for my Gf. I guess Sam has a drinking proob, even though he denies it, when I wanna face him w/it. That makes me sad. Such a gorgeous young man wasting his life on alcohol. I mmean, I´m not abstinent, drinking wine for lunch and dinner, the occasional drink however doesn´t make me a drinker, does it? And I have no idea, how to manage Sam out of his habit. Should I feel responsible for him? I mean, he´s only a part of my life, and currently not even a major one. We prbly. will meet tonite. I feel torn! Laters, Pilgrim ...P.S. sorry for the short post, but plz. If you have some ideas on the issue, let me know. ...P.P.S. now you might know, why I chose this spanish title for the first post on Sam. Hope, you guys found a translation.
