One of the things cancer took away from me, well I guess it was more the chemo, was my taste for beer/alcohol. I use to love it, especially during the summer. Not so much anymore. In fact, I cannot tell you when the last time I bought a 12 pack and brought it home, for me. That being said, I do not mind the occasional cold one when I am out with friend or at a place that has something I like while at dinner. Even my family, who enjoys it a lot and are pretty resolute (can we say peer pressure? 😛), can’t flip that switch. I don’t really know what it is. It is an unrequited relationship. It still likes me a lot, and I don’t mind drinking it, I just don’t want it. Granted, it has had an effect on the dinner bills (much much lower), and my extra monthly spending money. But those aren’t the real reasons. I thought it was a rite of passage, but my dad hasn’t even slowed down. And I really love Hard cider, and still favor my Angry Moon (aka snakebite, aka half lager, half cider, aka half Blue Moon, half Angry Orchard) anytime. I did drop a lot of weight when I first started, and without it I have managed to stay in my respectable range, and I feel better overall as I very rarely get sick any more as I think drinking actually may have lowered my immune system. It is just odd. There have been days, lots of them, where it called to me and I was listening, but I just didn’t want to go get it. So I don’t know. But I stopped in to this place (lots of idle chatter at the bar!), mainly because I had to get a shot of that wall display. It had the blue field in it so I was even more excited that I ran into it. And for the trouble, I happened to have one. And it was good, but one was all I wanted. And, ironically, it was an import! 😬😛
