HBH 165

A comfort, undrunk!
Talisman against the cold:
Hip-flask of whisky.

I have recently become the proud owner of a hip-flask for the first time in about twenty years. And I am finding it a very nice thing to have about me in this Arctic winter we're having - not just the reassurance of having an untapped emergency reserve of booze ready to hand; somehow, even just knowing it's there, without any thought of actually drinking from it, is a source of spiritual warmth.
