I drink about two or three times a year. Can't stand beer, of any kind, but I once had draft Miller at a steakhouse and it was freaking great.
I'm a smoker, both tobacco and occasionally marijuana, and over the years I've tried various forms of Liquor.
In NC we have A.B.C. stores, only place to buy real alcohol, the canned pisswater is sold at gas stations and grocery stores.
My experiences in an A.B.C. store has always been the same. It's like a combination of a library, candy store, and the "Guns, lots of guns" scene from
the Matrix. All the bottles are perfectly arrayed and attentive, each one patiently waiting for you to grab it by its throat and cradle it in your
hands like a newborn.
Every bottle sings a different tune. Some have effort put into the bottle's design, some have effort put into the cap and seal, some come naked, some
in a bag, some in paper cardboard, some in a box, and some are in small crates. The atmosphere in an A.B.C. is not unlike a cozy Christmas morn,
except there's no element of surprise, because you know what you're getting.
I personally take my time and make eye contact with each brand. I don't want a single one to feel unwanted, at times I mumble words of encouragement
and endearment and for those I've tried before and did not enjoy I sometimes say mean, nasty things, trying my best to force a tear down their
necks....huh...coincidentally I do the same at the quarterly meat market at the fairgrounds that's disguised as a "Recycle Your Old Electronics"
Just buy a bunch of the plastic dollar bottles and drink til your satisfied.
