I used to be a beer person. I don't drink it much anymore, but I sure did when Keltik was here. And when we went up to see Simp. I thought those two, being winos - excuse me, wine drinkers - would turn me on to the cultured joys of wine. But I let Keltik pick out the beers (the one time I did it was terrible) and stuck with them, only once succumbing to wine. And I was happy to report not having any hangovers. Although those Irish coffees on top of the brews that last night left very little in the memory.
Since Keltik's departure a month ago, I've drank maybe six beers. And none of them tasted as good as they did when he was here. Damn you, Keltik!
(He is originally from Wales. I believe they are born with indestructible stomachs.)
High school. Mogan David MD 20-20. "Blazing Saddles" at the drive-in. Yeah, I never did THAT again.
I went to a high school party in the woods right after I moved back to the Bay Area. There was a gallon of cheap wine and we all chugged to our heart's content. I got alcohol poisoning and was sick for 2 days. My mom said my skin looked green. Good times.
I sit and think of everything, then I wonder where I've been.
i drink both beer and wine, but beer more often. there are many good beers brewed within a day's drive of ann arbor (not that i do the driving, but that they can be delivered fresh to our fair city). i've been favoring high-gravity types in recent years, occasionally to my peril. there's a michigan-made imperial ipa for every day of the week, but as i drink almost exclusively on weekends, a backlog sometimes develops. my saturdays may be unproductive as a result.
Do you find, cicadashell (or anyone) that too much wine tends to make you feel a bit worse the next day than too much beer does? That's the impression I get from my wino - er, wine drinking friends Trevor & Simp.
