As a stay at home dad it’s at times very boring. I have done so many things in life and I realize I have never been a drunk. I have at times been close. It’s an achievement that has seemed elusive. There was always more pressing matters like responsibilities of a job or my previous business in New York City.
So how do I start? Do I just get drunk as frequently as I can? Do I start drinking for breakfast? Lately I been into bloody mary’s and boy those are good. Nice and spicy with that nice vegetabe tomato taste. I really love them. I am also a fan of Gin and Tonic which I have been steadily drinking for over a decade. It’s what I consider my fallback drink. Pretty hard to screw it up at just about any establishment. My preference is Bombay Sapphire gin.
I do drink plenty of beer as well. I used to be a big fan of imported brews like Amstel Light. However when I moved to Las Vegas somehow it tasted different. I suspect all the travel the bottles do changes somehow the flavor. Just a suspicion but I could totally be wrong. When I arrived the selection was very domestic and there aren’t too many microbrewery’s like NYC. So I have lowered the quality and was drinking Bud Light. Yes I realize how low-brow that might seem to you. I tend to agree. Oddly now that Budweiser has been sold to a European company does that make Budweiser an imported beer? I do like the new Bud Light Lime. It’s not bad at all. But currently my favorite suds of choice is Coors Light. I blame a local pub for having the coldest damn beer on tap I have ever had. Makes the beer just so much better. It’s actually frozen a bit on the top when you get it. It’s simply awesome. So many bars just don’t have their kegs cold enough and well, I am not from England so warm beer tastes like piss to me.
So back to my original thought. How do I become an alcoholic? You have to be thinking “why would you want that?” and well it’s just a simple answer. I am bored and I like to experience new things.
