Clearly Mr. Wills is a trouble-maker.
May I make a suggestion. Try to find Vernor's ginger ale. Aged in oak, I think it's been flavored by elves or dwarves or some such thing. Incredible! Best of all it is truly UL being so full of carbonation it's been known to rise off the table. See, this way you will be lightening your buddies load.
As for me, a book, though I tend not to read too much unless I get lazy. I recommend any of the first five Carlos Castenada books. Like "The Long Walk" they were once held to be fact, now debunked. But fun, easy enough to read, some nature, some supenature(al), and some Timothy Leary thrown in. According to Castenada it is important to choose a path with heart. He must have been a backpacker.
Can't wait to see how many bonus points I get for this.
