"2 Sheets to the Wind, 3 Sheets to set sail"
Johnny may have been talking about heavy drinking. When your 2 sheets to the wind, you are one hurting drunk. But by the 3rd sheet you just might be ready to set sail again. Or as I like to look at it, don't give up. Just because you hit that barrier, keep going. The other side just might have you flying again.
It's a good life...
