Walker & Cocaine
“Of course, the big plus about cocaine is that it works great for the first couple of weeks,” I mused. Let’s be fair. You get your first whetevers for free (if “Walker: Texas Ranger” has taught me anything), and you get days and days of enhanced alertness and productivity without distractions like sleeping and having to leave the room before going to the bathroom.
But even as the steel door in front of the post office started ratcheting down and I skidded underneath it on my belly like Pete Rose trying to make it to third and beat the point spread, I dismissed the thought. Cocaine gives a great demo, but once you’re stuck with the decision on a day-to-day basis you quickly come to regret it. I chose Macs over Windows for exactly this reason. End of aside.)
