Simpler Times

Last night husband and I were drinking a beer from Trader Joe's called Simpler Times. Apparently, in simpler times they made their beer with a 6.2% alcohol content. I'm guessing that's because in simpler times you didn't go to therapists or use serotonin reuptake inhibitors you just drank harder.


And because it's always a good idea to go on the internet after you've been drinking, I started catching up on my email. And I tried to explain to my friend that my email might not make as much sense as normal, which isn't much anyhow, because I was a little boozy. But that it was all ok because I was drinking in the name of nostalgia.

When I went to spellcheck my email this is what was suggested to me...

Simply, nailed it.

Love it even better that Michael discovered yesterday that there were still 2 bottles secreted away of last year's Trader Joe's Christmas Ale and started drinking them. He didn't realize it was 9.something% alcohol and was tipsy within an hour. Bwa ha ha.

JC - Excellent movie.

Transplanting - Booze, clearly.

AmyKate - How did we miss that? Gonna check out the ales next time I'm there.

You have to be careful about the alcohol content. I learned that the hard way in Prague after ending up in a manhole laughing my ass off while attempting to claw my way out of a dirt hole and wondering why I was so drunk off of three beers. My male companions were unable to pull me out of the hole because they were laughing so hard. 12% alcohol content + jet lag = not seeing manhole in sidewalk while in foreign countries

Anon - That is exactly why you DON'T check the alcohol content. Cause then you have awesome adventures involving European manholes. Drink on!

I can't get enough of your blog. Too funny.

One of my girlfriends (why is that term only acceptable if you're younger than 10 and older than 50?) emailed me your link and said, "You've got to read this stuff. This is way better than the jokes we make about getting diarrhea when we're cramping." And surprisingly, it is.

Miss Jess - Believe me I am all over Trader Joe's wine.

Greta - Thanks lady! I'm always happy to be funnier than shit. ;)
