Irish whiskeys are normally distilled three times

 My friend told me about some whiskey slap game that she played last week. You take a shot and someone slaps you in the face. Just like that. It sounds like something I would have invented while camping in the 90s. But I've never actually slapped someone in the face. I've never been slapped. I don't like whiskey. 
But sometimes I think I would love to slap someone. Hard and fast like when you turn your head when you think something is out there in the dark. A fast moving animal that scares you. The moon on your shoulder. All the spaces between the trees. A neighbor on his patio crying into the night.
