'all I can do I've done but the memories won't go my blue blue heart, Red red wine...it's up to you ...'

Sheryl sighed and opened a can of Red Bull. She thought of all the hangovers she had had over the years, all the wasted days, all those evening when she had conversations with herself in front of the bathroom mirror, and now look at her, in front of nice man Steven, and bloody Neil Diamond.
