The Passenger by Cormac McCarthy:
Was drinking a problem?
I don’t know. I guess I’d have to say it was. I’d wake up in strange places. I woke up one time in somebody’s parked car and I thought, well, what if you woke up dead? That kind of got to me. I mean, do you think if you died drunk you’d sober up before you met Jesus?
Good question. I don’t know.
I thought about that. Standin in front of him drunk. What would he say. Hell, what would you say?
I guess I dont think your soul gets drunk.
Webb thought about that. Well, he said. Maybe yours dont.
