I have a very firm belief in happy hour. Whether your happy hour is at noon, 5, or midnight, a time of relaxation and beverage enjoyment should always be recognized. I’m a personal advocate of “the more the merrier,” so I like to incorporate as many of these hours as I can. Unfortunately, my job and lifestyle do not usually accomodate such a whimsical day, but an effort should always be made, right?
Now don’t start waving that judgemental finger at me, that’s rude, and most likely you are just as messed up as I am. Besides, this space was meant for honesty, and I honestly respect a good wine, and any bartender, wine connoisseur, or any self-proclaimed foodie will most likely agree.
I know many were not wired to handle any of these spirits even in small bits, and I actually do not feel sorry for these folks. They will most likely not take happy hour enjoyment to the level of spending a night in an alley, or head on a dirty bar, and they will always remember where all that money went. (not all personal experiences, people)
For the rest of us, however, it’s a seemingly endless art to master- Finding that Level and Maintaining. Maybe not, maybe we can sit on the deck and enjoy just one, but either way, can we please do that now?
Even 50cent sang so eloquently, “..we gonna sip Bacardi like it’s yo birfday.”
Or Snoop Dogg (woops! I meant Snoop Lion) “…sippin’ on gin and juice…”
Rihanna said it “..so everybody put your glasses up and I’ll drink to that..”
Toby Keith and Willie Nelson gave whiskey to their men and then beer to their horses!
Jamie Foxx is a little negative and blames it all on the alcohol…so disregard him.
Gretchen Wilson is always “Here for the party”…she’s a hot mess.
and who doesn’t have a great time with Jimmy Buffet in Margaritaville?
I hope you find an old friend to sit with you and enjoy a brew…or two or seven.
