“I used to be able to shotgun shitty beer in like, ten seconds flat.”
Griffin raises an eyebrow at him. “Oh yeah?”
“Oh, yeah,” Nick says, grinning at Griffin’s tone. “You know, college parties, drinking games. Who can finish it fastest, races, that kinda stuff. I was good at it. I was widely admired.”
Griffin laughs. “That’s something you wanna brag about?”
Nick says, “Yeah, of course. What’s stopping me? It’s a talent.”
“Could you still do it?”
“Shit, don’t test me, dude. I can do you one better. C’mere.” Nick’s not tipsy enough to justify this, but he likes Griffin so much, and it’s fun to be like this, to show off. “Pour it down my throat. I don’t even need to do it.”
