On a side note to expense, every where especially bars are highly expensive. It may end up becoming the cause of my sobriety. This came to me as I sat in a bar for the the 3rd time in a row where i did not buy a drink. This is a big deal, because back home I would buy ten - plus drinks per night. However, LA looks out for people like me. Next door to most of these bars a liquor store has conveniently been placed so I can continue my alcoholism at a reasonable price. Thank god for immigration, without it I would not have a cheap liquor store to visit coupled with a taco stand ran by a single mexican woman in her mid 50s selling meals for three dollars.
Thank god for you immigrants because with you I am able to maintain a stable body of unhealth for a fraction of the price.
