41. An Ebb Tide Lowers All Boats
‘She’s still Mikey’s little girl,’ Sheila thought. She’d been the same way when she was Tiffany’s age. But as the years passed, her father’s drinking had gotten worse. She remembered being ten and strolling through the middle of the living room, kissing his cheek as she passed him sitting in his favorite chair. By the time she’d turned fifteen, she’d hug the far wall, eyes on him, trying not to breathe or make a sound, waiting to see how drunk he was, what his mood might be, hoping to slip into her room unnoticed. 
Today I will remember addictions get progressively worse, for everyone concerned.
