    Well I can't drive him to drink since he is already firmly established at that location. But maybe I drove him into the arms of a wanton floosie, who was only after him for his body (or what's left of it).

    It is Valentine's day after all and he's only been AWOL for a few hours. He's probably out picking flowers.
