since it was bumped, i will add a story!!
i got out of the house for the first time last night since the baby was born, and went to drink a few and smoke some cigars and watch MNF with my buddies. i was in a hurry, and short on cash so i stopped at the convience store and they had MILLER HIGH LIFE in a 32 ounce tall-boy can for $1.49. now, i have NEVER had MILLER HL.. i have had miller lite, and genuine draft, but never the original. to be honest, i dont like miller lite or the GD, but a bargain is a bargain!! i looked in the beer cooler for something else to fit my needs, but there was nothing standing out to me. so, i grabbed 2 cold cans, a bag of pork skins, and headed toward the counter.
once i got to my buddies house, i pulled out one of the cans and sat it on the coffee table, and went to the kitchen to put the other can in the fridge. well, when i got back, they were all looking at me like i had grown a penis out of my forehead. their look of astonishment was rather unsettling.. i assured them it was OK, i hadnt been abducted by aliens, and that i was trying it out cause it was cheap. i mean, i got diapers and stuff to buy now.. i cant be wasting good money on expensive beer.
so, i pop the top and raise it up for a smell.. **sidenote**, a 32 oz can feels about like trying to drink from a 55 gallon drum. OK, take a whiff, and its not too bad. not great.. they are still lookin at me, so i think the penis on my head has gotten bigger.. finally take a drink, and to my surprise, its not all bad. it seemed a little bitter, but not unbearable.. it got easier with each drink, and by the second quarter, it was just like any other beer. i decided to start pouring the next can in a glass and keep the can in the fridge, it kinda got warm at the bottom of the first one. it went down fine, and i am proud to say that i have found my new choice, that is, as long as it stays $1.49 a can!! i am the consumate bargain shopper!!
BTW- i think this goes to prove, i am just a beer whore.. i have found that i will drink any beer, dark or ale, regular or light, cold or warm, thick and thin, expensive or cheap!! it dont matter very much at all.. to be honest, i think i have only turned 2 beers away in my whole life.. one was a samual adams, YUCK.. and the other was a german beer that had stuff floating in it.. the barback said it was to add flavor, i just felt like i was drinkin from some cowboys spit cup!
OK, story over.. point and laugh if you want, i dont care!!
