Friends, it is with a heavy heart I must tell you the following news, our friend "The Hand" found it increasingly difficult to say goodbye to his favorite bottle of Gordons Gin last night.

It was debauchery at it's worst- or perhaps best- depends on your take on life I guess. I am afraid, the inhibitions of his mental state made him do things that would have had Dr. Kinsey crossing his legs!

ohhhhhhhhh it was bad, really bad........but not quite as bad as his morning breath~~

Quick somebody give me the number for 911, we need an intervention.

I knew he wouldn't pick up that phone! Knew it. Oh, the drink is hard to give up.
Such a fun series Proz - super focus on the condensed glass - and, oh, that "face" in the glass is almost spooky!

Looks like the hand is emerging from a bath, hope he did not literally drown his sorrows.

I foresee an pink square for the next upload...
Like Pascal, I prefer whisky, could never see the point of gin. But it does come in very photogenic bottles.
This is outstanding, as an abstract and as a close-up.

It is in the nature of sociable hands to be shaken.........

Technically and tonally superb. Proz. It is sad to learn that the Hand is still psychologocally challenged.

Couldn't quite make out the photo, so had to take a look. With the story now told the picture makes sense.

Forget whisky or gin.It is dark rum for me !!!!!
And can I have a night out with the Hand?
My drinking buddies are getting too old to last the pace !!!
They want to go home to their beds well before 4 o'clock in the morning. No staying power you see!!
Nice work here Proz.
