...for a while that the world has slipped from chaos to order,
...that your mind is a bell with a singular perfect note resounding off cheap wood paneling and neon bar signs.
...that you can express any idea to with perfect clarity and wit to anyone in the bar.
...the song you are hearing right now is the most beautifully crafted song ever written. You close your eyes and get lost inside.
...that for at least this moment, all of your problems have been lifted from you, and you are, at least at this moment, unencumbered with that baggage, a better person.
...that your friend across the table is sharing this perfect moment with you, but knowing that he's probably just sizing up the waitstaff.
