Day off of a very slow, pathetically slow, week. D had to take a vacation day, this close to the end of the fiscal year. We got the car cleaned yesterday afternoon, including vacuuming out the detritus. Today, got to the park for a Good Walk (forgot the camera), recycled some glass, lunched lightly, and stopped for Epic beer. Imperial Stout is fabulous. In reserve, a Smokey Porter, which is amazing.
D asked a very smart question, for a non-drinker especially, about the difference between beer and ale. I could not answer. So I looked it up on wiki when I got home. Unsurprisingly, the entry is extensive. It's not simple. I wish he'd asked at the brewery, I'm sure the guy there would have given a good answer. Brewer guy commended my choice of beers, neither of us understands why some people only like lite beers, where we both love stouts and porters. We both loved his enthusiasm. I did get to take some credit for turning on a lot of the drinkers at work to their (now one year old) brewery.
Much low back (euphemistic for butt) pain, beer is pleasant anesthetic. Going for massage on Saturday, taking nsaids, stim and D will put his elbow into the soreness.
Life, whatcha gonna do?
