It’s my first night out since becoming “sober.” I’m 65 days without a drink, I mean.
I moved to Downtown Los Angeles. I was living a mile from the Staples Center where the Lakers, Kings and Clippers play. I was two miles away from Dodger Stadium and two miles from Memorial Coliseum where USC plays College football. It all sounds amazing and it was, but I was also only a block away from Skid Row where the homeless and crackheads play.
