Stephen King Quotes: Thats How On The Second To Last Day Of

That's How, On The Second-to-last Day Of The Job, The Convict Crew That Tarred The Plate-factory Roof In 1950 Ending Up Sitting In A Row At Ten O'clock On A Spring Morning, Drinking Black Label Beer Supplied By The Hardest Screw That Ever Walked A Turn At Shawshank Prison. That Beer Was Piss-warm, But It Was Still The Best I Ever Had In My Life. We Sat And Drank It And Felt The Sun On Our Shoulders, And Not Even The Expression Of Half-amusement, Half-contempt On Hadley's Face - As If He Was Watching Apes Drink Beer Instead Of Men - Could Spoil It. It Lasted Twenty Minutes, That Beer-break, And For Those Twenty Minutes We Felt Like Free Men. We Could Have Been Drinking Beer And Tarring The Roof Of One Of Our Own Houses.
