C’mon BevMo And Some Super Shiny Screws

I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve been inside of a BevMo. The first time I was overwhelmed at the insane amount of alcohol they had. It didn’t stop there, I was also impressed with the selection of weird soda’s, root beer and ginger beers I had never heard of. The second time I went in there I was again overwhelmed, but not so much so that I didn’t walk out empty handed. I am not much of a drinker, *except for the Kahlua and milk I have every night before bed. Naturally, my first purchase was Kahlua, but because this was BevMo they offered Kahlua in flavors I had not even imagined. The one I chose was a French Vanilla flavor. With my first purchase at BevMo I was asked, as you often are at every freaking store, if I wanted to be part of their club. Since I have no friends I quickly said yes, daydreaming of all the club meetings and outings I’d be going on with my Kahlua drinking BevMo buddies. But alas, all I’ve gotten out of it are these offensive coupons.

$10 off, seriously? This coupon is offensive on so many levels. The phrase “$10 off” in bold lettering is somewhat enticing, but then you see that it only applies to wine purchases and after that you see that to receive the $10 off you have to spend $100. I’m no math expert, but that is only 10% off and giving people 10% off is such a joke I’d rather not be part of your dumb club. End rant.

Switching gears now…

Believe it or not I did a load of laundry last night and, like a little kid, I totally forgot to empty my pockets beforehand. When my kids clothes get washed you find gum wrappers, pennies, a pencil eraser and all sort of other little kid debris in the wash.

When I forget to empty my pockets you find super shiny screws and a quarter, which means I carry way more money than my kids.

So, let’s recap what we’ve learned. Club BevMo does not have Kahlua get togethers and their sales suck. And if you want shiny screws just throw them in the dirty clothes pile.

See ya!

* I don’t really have Kahlua and milk every night before bed. Just every other night.

A Little Cocktail Of Sorts

(This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the content of this post, but research shows that blogs with photos get more views, so there you go. I will mention that these pulled pork tacos from Robert’s Restaurant were phenomenal. PHENOMENAL!)

As some of you know, my family caught some sort of plague a couple of weeks ago. Everybody, with the exception of Evelyn, got hit by it. I am still not totally well. It’s this damn cough. It’s just so dang persistent. I can’t shake this thing. At night it gets worse and when I lay down to sleep it gets worser. Yes, “worser”. It’s an artistic misspelling used for emphasis. You’ve got to learn the rules, before you can break them, people! Anyway…the cough is a real persistent mutha at bedtime. A few nights ago I decided to medicate myself. In other words, I crafted a “sleepy time cocktail of sorts”.

I was very determined to get some sleep and not just toss, cough, turn, cough all night. I’m sure the cocktail I crafted is not as gnarly as snorting crushed Tylenol’s or taking a hit off a crack pipe, but still…I’m a lightweight when it comes to this sort of thing. Maybe try this at home? Maybe try this before you go out for a night on the town? Either way, you could be setting yourself up for a really great time. Ready? Go!

(Again, this photo has nothing to do with this post, but just in case you ever wondered what I would look like with a Bozo The Clown cut, now you know. You’re welcome. Get your own Bozo cut at Woody’s Old Time Barber Shop.)

First I downed 30 ml of NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu to suppress the annoying cough I had. Next, I popped a couple of chewable peppermint flavored melotonin’s to help me sleep. Then, just for good measure and to add a bit of coziness to my self medicating experiment, I drank a cup a Trader Joe’s Hot Cocoa…
with a shot of Kahlua in it. At least a shot, that’s very important. Then I brushed me teeth, grabbed the iPad, laid in bed and watched It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Netflix until I passed out about 8 minutes into the show.

And that, my friends, is the Claassen Cocktail For A Coughless Sleepy Time.

Feel free to let us know your favorite self-medicating cocktails. We’d love to hear them!
