Over-Indulgence

On Friday morning Burt got his Christmas bonus from Super Valu, where he works, in the form of €100 worth of shop vouchers. By half six that evening, when I returned from work, my living room was filled [Not exactly filled; it's not that small] with one hundred bottles of Stella Artois. Normal people would have bought some food with their vouchers, perhaps a slab of lager. I personally would have bought twenty jars of gourmet jam. Not our Burt! Why waste money on food when you can buy more beer than you can carry? He is now working his way gradually through the beer lake by having a bottle in his hand at all times. Before we went out on Saturday he and Kellyo drank thirty-one bottles of the stuff. Thirty-one bottles. In two hours. That's fairly impressive in my book.

If that was me I think I would have a least bought myself some nice 'quality' booze, like a bottle of JD and maybe a bottle of gin. Amateurs, pfft.

Wow. I like Burt so much I think I'm going to cry. He gives every man something to aspire to.

Burt sounds like my kind of guy.

At least he bought GOOD beer. I know people who would buy that much Michelob Ultra Light. Honey, I say, tap water is free. (only posting anonymously cause I don't have an e-blogger account. But I love your blog. Found it through Stephenesque and I'm glad I wandered over...)
