Title: Things that are better with alcohol...
Post by: beerocd on July 08, 2010, 02:19:07 AM
Just trying to keep things on topic; I saw some divergence elsewhere and thought to make a thread about it.

I'll start off nice and easy:   South Park : The movie

Everything.  I'm lucky to have my wife.  Her father's motto in life is "Everything goes with beer".  Could there be any better in-laws than that?

Sticking with the obvious: first dates. I made the mistake of going out for coffee yesterday. Jesus, other people are boring.

1.  Float trips. I'm not talking about whitewater rafting, just some nice somewhat fast moving water with trout in it and maybe a couple of Class II rapids.

If I were a highway patrolman, everytime I saw a vehicle towing a raft on a trailer returning home late in the day or in the evening, I would pull him over and make the driver walk a straight line.

and....the most obvious of all......

2.  Ice fishing.  Around here, its known as "ice drinking".

Funny, that's a movie I have a complete food association with.  Had my first gin and tonic while watching that movie for the first time and have an inexorable mental association between that movie and Tanqueray.

The original "Nightmare on Elm Street".

Horror movies are better with alky.  Makes them less scary because you're all relaxed and sh*t.  People you don't normally enjoy talking to or being with.

Brewing beer. Its already a great hobby, but it just is so much more enjoyable and rewarding with one of your own beers in your hand while brewing a new batch.

Yes, 2 weeks ago  :'(  However, it was at 11AM, so I doubt I would have had too many anyhow.

Playing golf and baseball.  Beer is an absolute necessity to watch baseball for me - its just way too boring otherwise.

Oh, and recovering from a vasectomy...

Can you guys start your own vasectomy support group thread?
It's giving me that same feeling like when watching videos of a skater rack himself on the handrails.  :o  ;)  :P

Alcohol would definitely be good to have, if while at your in-laws house recovering, they throw you a vasectomy party and invite all of their friends.

I'd be more inclined to put a martini shaker in there (or mai-tai or whatever) and drink it at the end. I tried with a bottle of beer - it jumps out. So I drink on the long swipes of lawn and finish before I gotta start doing donuts around the trees.

I have to admit, my own wedding reception was dry, but then again, we cleared out of that joint within 45 minutes to an hour as I recall!   ;D

Still friends with anyone who stood for you? I'd at least have made frequent trips to the trunk of my car in that situation.
