Re: Free Beer, Loose Women and ...
I was born at a very early age, then, some stuff happened...
Whoops! Wrong story.
I used to play coed softball after work, where my lack of athletic prowess always astounded my team mates. One afternoon we chipped in for beer and came up with six bucks and change.
Sirs! There's nine players on a team. Six bucks won't hardly buy squat. Still: We were thirsty, and cold beers were just a block or two away... Due in part to my mad skills (oh yeah, I already mentioned that part) I was chosen for the beer run.
So there I was, looking at the selection... and the prices. Like I said: Six bucks don't buy much. But wait! Looka there: It's a Hamm's 12 pack, it's cold, and I can afford it!
I'm thinking "HERO". Everyone gets a beer, with some to spare.
I held my head high on the way back, knowing I'd turned straw into liquid gold.
Hmpf. Not so fast, beer boy.
"You bought WHAT?!" From hero to zero, just like that.
As I recall though, we drank it. I can only think of one (non-hot) beer that I've ever poured out. But after that, they never picked me
to go on the beer run again...
