From a Farther Room

What did I just read (see it online)? A story about a middle-age man who goes a bit crazy with the alcohol with an old friend. He wakes to find out he’s vomited a puke baby. Amid the crazy plot device, lies a great depiction of a mid-life American male, with all his regrets, responsibilities, relationships, and, of course, vomit-induced babies.
