SOMEWHERE IN A DAMP, DARK PLACE —
Hello? Is anyone out there? I can’t see anything. It’s cold and wet. It’s hard to tell but I think it’s been 3 months, 14 days, 7 hours.
I waited in the case, with the rest of my brothers and sisters in branch. Then my day came, one Sunday afternoon. I was plucked from the box and set on the stainless steel bar top. Then it happened, I started to roll. Roll, roll, nobody stopped it. I just rolled right off the side of the rail, and under the cooler.
As I fell into the darkness, I saw the glimmer of eyes. The barback saw me disappear and did nothing. I expected a rescue, but it never came. I fear I may live out the rest of my days here, praying for a bar clean day in the near future.
