Get a flask (Exercise #9)

April 30, 2006

A flask makes you feel old and young at the same time.  One one hand, children rarely carry flasks.  They're reserved more for serious alcoholics and snobs.  On the other hand, you can now sneak alcohol into any event.  It gives you the exhilaration of possibly doing something secret and wrong that reminds me (at least) of younger days.  Carrying a flask around you for a couple weeks (if you don't already) will give you a new perspective on public and private spaces.  If you don't drink alcohol, fill it with apple juice.  It doesn't matter!

  1. Bob Says:

    Having owned and carried a flask for quite some time (being one of the aforementioned alcoholics), I recommend against putting juice or any other sugar-laden, acid-heavy liquid in a metal flask. It’ll ruin it.

    Otherwise, I heartily recommend flasks. With booze. Not juice.


  2. According to the article entitled “Get a flask,” flasks are “reserved more for serious alcoholics and snobs. On the other hand, you can now sneak alcohol into any event. It gives you the exhilaration of possibly doing something secret and wrong that reminds me (at least) of younger days.”

    This sounds like another example of parents telling their children about the dangers of alcohol abuse and how they shouldn’t do deceitful things like figuring out how to sneak alcohol into any event. This is a perfect example of saying to a teenager “do as I say, not what I do.” And it is such mixed messages that give legitimacy to the defiance and rebellion manifested by teens regarding drinking alcohol.
