The aerobar of the drinker
“Why are you drinking? demanded the little prince.
– So that I may forget, replied the tippler.
– Forget what? inquired the little prince, who already was sorry for him.
– Forget that I am ashamed,» the tippler confessed, hanging his head.
– Ashamed of what? insisted the little prince, who wanted to help him.
– Ashamed of drinking! The tippler brought his speech to an end, and shut himself up in an impregnable silence.”
