The best copliment I've ever gotten
« on: May 30, 2013, 06:41:22 PM »
I have a 20 year old daughter. She is in college and has had a series of terrible boyfriends (drugs, crime, etc). About a year ago she started dating a new guy. We were skeptical, but her sister claimed he was "a really nice guy". We met him very briefly about a month ago, and then yesterday we took them both to lunch, just to get to know him a little better. This kid is not exactly like me, but he's real close. Light hair, light skin, just like me. Easy going, doesn't say much, just like me (especially at 21). And, he brews his own beer! Just like me. Apparently his family lives close to the campus so he can get there a lot. His dad brews too and they have a yard full of hops. We were laughing about it the entire ride back home. I'm sure it won't last forever, but I'm glad she is finding out what a normal, decent boyfriend is like. And she gets free beer!

That why you never go against the family...
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

If my daughter was dating someone just like me I'd shoot him.

Ya, but you'd only wing him.  You wouldn't want the brewery to close down.   ;D

If I was winged the brewery would still shut down!
