Jane rang Roger at seven o’clock in the morning to see where Johnny was, as he hadn’t arrived home yet. She was drawn and worried but Roger assured her he’d be all right and to go back to bed and relax. Meanwhile, a man turns off Lexington Avenue on to 71st Street. For most people a new day is just beginning but for Johnny an evening has just ended. His expensive suit is wet and torn and one sleeve of his jacket is missing entirely, his nose has been bleeding and the blood is caked on his shirtfront. But Johnny doesn’t care about any of this because Johnny is a pathological drinker. Nobody seems to mind this except his wife, Jane, because Johnny is charming. He loves people and every body and when he’s drunk he thinks everybody loves him.
