I don’t drink anymore

I don’t drink anymore.

I just support bartenders.

I’ve decided this is the way to categorize my drinking. . . as support for bartenders.

Now I’m not one to blow my own horn but a few years back I REALLY supported bartenders.

I actually dated one.

So I know exactly how alluring it is to support bartenders by drinking the new concoctions and potions they create while they master their trade.

Never did I ever pass up a drink.

Today, I got a text from a friend.

It said:  The bar over here is having a soft opening tonight until 9.  Might check it out. Support the bartenders.

And that REALLY got me thinking.

Maybe that’s how I’ll categorize all future drinking adventures.

As bartender support.

Do you suppose I could write it off on my taxes?

Charitable Donations?

Check.

Business Expenses?

Check.

Bartender Support?

Check!

Outrageous

I voted.

I can’t remember the last time I skipped voting.

I think it’s important to make my voice and opinions heard, regardless of whether or not I’m a huge fan of the candidates, measures, or propositions.

This is not a political blog.

I don’t write about my political beliefs, although I do occasionally let my distaste for certain politicians be known.

I have a few friends who have a different political persuasion than me.

And honestly, I have found that NOT DISCUSSING POLITICS is the best way to stay friends.

But sometimes I JUST HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING.

And for that, I don’t apologize.

I have at least one friend who is to some degree a Trump supporter.

The other day he posted on his Facebook page that he was never going to watch Saturday Night Live again because a cast member made a joke about veterans.

I think the joke was in poor taste and missed its mark.

I don’t watch SNL nor do I plan to.

However, I found it HUGELY ironic that my friend felt this was worthy of a boycott while still supporting a man who joked about sexually assaulting women.

Grab them by the pussy.

It’s just locker room talk.

Totally excusable.

But heaven forbid someone make a bad joke about veterans.

I’m not excusing the veteran joke.

It was a bad joke and other castmates have spoken out against it.

However, if you’re going to get outraged about things people say, then I think that outrage over someone bragging about sexually assaulting women is not misplaced.

If we generously ASSUME Trump was making a joke, I personally think both “jokes “are distasteful and worthy of my spite.

Just saying.

Picture Perfect

haha

Caution:  Really graphic joke coming up….

You’ve been warned….

What is “the Rodeo”?  It’s when you’re having sex doggie style and you lean forward and tell your partner that your last girlfriend was better than her then you try to hold on for the next 8 seconds.

Seriously…. a guy at a party told me that joke and I nearly died laughing.
