I went to happy hour last night. It was not happy and I did not last an hour. When asked by someone at the table why I wasn’t drinking, my deadpan response was, “Court ordered”. Some people laughed and others gave me a strange look as if to say “well, that’s the only reason that a person would ever not drink so maybe this guy really does have a problem” It made for an akward silence. You know, the kind where a person would normally drink to ease the tension at the table. Nope, not me. I just sat there…..the guy who wasn’t drinking.
I was able to snag a few items from the sampler on the table. A half of a chicken finger, a mozzarella stick, and 2 of the hottest wings ever. It was so hot that I wanted to lick the outside of someone’s beer glass to cool off my mouth. Luckily I was able to refrain as that might be the most creepy thing I can think of doing in public………maybe not, but it’s up there.
After 45 minutes I’d had about enough hanging out and not drinking. I took my gym bag and went home. Everyone was sad to see the sober guy leave.
Watching Conan….dude looks pretty pissed. I know how depressed I’d be to get paid $45 m not to work. Pee Wee Herman just showed up (you know, the guy who got caught jerking off in an adult theatre) He is now playing with a stuffed giraffe. Let’s see what Letterman is up to..
Conan has a horse wearing a mink Snuggie on his show. How did NBC ever let this guy go?
