Hi again beer lovers! Happy Friday!
This is the closing weekend of Oktoberfest; imagine yourself in Munich with 100,000 other drinkers.
I'm neither home nor in Munich; this weekend is my 30th college class reunion. So I won't be part of the discussion tonight. You all can talk about beer without me, can't you?
Reunions are weird emotionally. On other blogs I've seen "should I go to my reunion" discussed lots of times. I've always enjoyed my HS and college reunions. OTOH, this year more than ever, I'm aware that the only people I'll see tonight who aren't richer and more successful that me are the caterers (and I'm not certain about them). My classmates include a congressman, at least one successful author, a dkos front pager, and more doctors than I can count. I can't even brag about my kids.
Life's a bitch. Then you die. I'm confident someone will be glad to see me, or at least say so.
I'm drinking whatever the caterers bring. I'm betting on Lagunitas IPA, if not that they're bound to have Sierra. What are you drinking?
