It was quite a few years ago that a few of my friends and I were writing some rules for drinking. They started simple, but they grew and each one was very significant. We have plans to put them to use one day. But, I thought I’d share a few with you. The ones that are most important.
Don’t Drink Another Person’s Beer
First of all, never drink another person’s beer. It has been done and it’s not fun, not for either party involved. If you don’t know where your beer is, you need to start figuring out a way to keep track of it. Picking up a beer you thought was yours and taking a huge drink can, to put it nicely, ruin the party for you.
On the other hand, no one likes when someone else takes a swig of the beer they’ve been enjoying. Now, who wants to finish it? I’m not drinking after other people and all of my friends feel the same way.
So, we started a system. One guy likes to put a dent in his can just below the mouth. Another guy might turn his tab to the side. My system is easy. I keep it in my hands and if I have to sit it down, I make whatever I’m doing with two hands fast. That way works for cans, cups and bottles. So, it’s full-proof.
Don’t Drink a Person’s Last Beer
Have you ever met the guy who comes over with no beer and then cleans out your refrigerator? As fellow beer enthusiasts, we don’t appreciate it. But, we never turn anyone down. So, we made it a rule that you can’t drink the last one. It’s agreed that none of us are that rude.
Don’t Drink Angry
This was an interesting discovery. My closest friend and I were talking about it one night and then our hypothesis turned out to be true. If you are angry, you shouldn’t drink to forget or drink to get happy. It doesn’t work that way. You’ll only get more upset.
Those are just a few of the rules and I promise more. But, there’s a story that goes with each one. So, get ready! You just might find them to be both entertaining and educational.
