It’s a drink with a friend after work tonight, and call it what you will, but I am calling it a date for no other reason than I’ve been excited about this for the entire week. To not get my hopes up and have them be inevitably crushed, I should probably refer to this happy hour as nothing more than a beer with a chum that happens to be a ridiculously beautiful girl. I saw her for a bit towards the end of 2008 then things sorta fizzled out…mainly due to some personal crap I put myself though and dissociating myself with the likes of mankind in general. I took solace in my TV on DVD characters. Anyway, when I was seeing her, I remember one night her being impressed by my buddy who could/can open beer bottles with his teeth. While I have yet to still perfect that art, maybe if I were to don a belt to crack the Coronas, she would look at me in a different light again. I’ll admit, too, I can’t even do the lighter trick without gouging the skin out of my thumb knuckle.
This all of course revolves around my being able to convince her that, “No. Instead of the bar, we should kick it at my place and watch bad movies. I just got Rudy used from Amazon for $0.79. You in?” And because I like themes, as well as keeping my hands dry, my beer cool, and my friends impressed and inspired. What better way than to open said brew-dog, raise an eyebrow, nod towards my guest, and slide the bottle into their very own Play Like a Champion Can Cooler. Yeah, yeah before you say anything, I know koozies are really for cans. But I will hear none of that. Beer taste better from bottles. So I will stick with them. Psh.
