"Like Truman [Capote] and me, Brigid was trying not to drink. It brought the three of us closer, and Truman liked to joke about our 'very exclusive A.A. [Alcoholics Anonymous] cell,' though only Brigid was a member of that organization.
Andy, on the other hand, was no more supportive of Brigid's efforts than he was of mine or Truman's. He'd often come into the office and say, 'It's so cold out, I can feel it in my bones. Wouldn't a nice hot Irish coffee be nice now, Brigid? You can have just one, can't you?'
Brigid would say she didn't want an Irish coffee, but Andy would give her a hundred-dollar bill and send her out to buy Irish whiskey and heavy cream.
She'd whip up the drink for him and he'd take two sips and leave the remainder on the desk in front of her. Then, when she binged out, he'd walk around the office saying, 'I don't understand why Brigid just can't have one drink. What's wrong with her?'
In the warm weather, he'd come in and say how hot it was and suggest that Brigid whip up some pina coladas." (BC405-6)
