Christmas Spirit

I keep two types of beer in my home in two different locations. One, Beer Of The Month Club selections (thanks son), other beers new to me waiting for review and beers I like and am holding in the dining room with the wine I’ll just call the good stuff. Two, the beer I can afford, (still looking for a corporate sponsor) I’ll call SWILL in the laundry room. I don’t know why this is, but it just is the way it is.

Two years ago (2006) our entire Christmas decoration was one rosemary plant in the shape of a small Christmas tree with tiny decorations outdoors, those things really smell. The lovely Mrs. Beer Love wasn’t going to let that happen again so after Thanksgiving this past year we got down all the Christmas decorations from the attic and piled them in the dining room. That night I went to get a good beer from my stash to put it in the ice box and found that I couldn’t get to them because of the triple mound of decorations piled in front of them. Why didn’t you just move them and get your beer? I’ll just say that the triple deep stack arranged by the lovely Mrs. Beer Love seemed less than random and the special “look” that came my way. Any man married for very long knows that “look.”

Talk about having the Christmas spirit FLUNG on you. Within 24 hours the tree was up, 48 hours the lights were on and 72 hours enough decorations were on it to whittle the pile down enough to reach through to get a good one. That was a record for me since the Beer Love kids left home.

The moral is if you don’t want to have the spirit FLUNG on you this way find another spot to hide the GOOD stuff.
