If they obtain it I will buy it. I used to know a few people who would drink anything containing alcohol that would take it. Unfortunately, because of that willingness they are gone now. Maybe I will pass it around to observe peoples expressions. When you indicated that the "post" gave you "shivers" flags popped up for me!!
I knew a car salesman who loved his scotch. We were having cigars and talking one day when he got out the scotch. He had an ulcer and mixed both with milk. That is how I know that feeling. One taste and I told him NO WAY! If I took another sip I was going to throw up on his floor! He drank mine and it gave me the chills just to watch him.
It is what you get used to I guess. I am getting too old to be conditioning myself for new tastes.
Well Boddingtons took on a life of it's own. I had a few friends meet me over at my Celtic Pub in my cellar a few weeks ago: "Tomfoolery's". They tried a Boddingtons. Some liked it some didn't.
BUT we decided to meet every Thursday after work for a few laughs. Then we decided to have a name for the group and since the Boddingtons was very prevalent at the first gathering it was decided to call it:
"THE BODDINGTON SOCIETY"
Sounds important and like something real. Well .........now we have hand gestures, society names, Boddington T shirts, a Boddington neon light, and glasses with the Boddingtons logo on them set up in a corner on the pub. Yeah I know, pretty goofy. It was described by one of our wifes that we were are acting like a bunch of Jr. High kids that found a Playboy in the woods. Last Wednesday I saw one of our member's wife at the supermarket and she says to me, " I hear the Society is meeting tomorrow". I said: "Yes and make sure your husband isn't late. He's our President" She said: "Don't tell me that" He IS our President! Whatever that means, were not sure. We have added more "members" in recent weeks and had a ton of laughs.
That's why I made the pub. Get's friends together for some silly relaxing fun. P.S. Usually we have ESPN showing on the flat screen but I played a Great Big Sea DVD last time, to some members dismay..... at first. But I think they have a couple new fans now. Young Dubliners next week??
