#232 – Relax

When I was a kid I remember beer being this mysterious liquid that was forever being carried around over my head but always out of reach. “Oh no, that’s not for you! The juice boxes are in the other cooler.” Finally one day someone left a bottle of beer alone in a room with nobody else but me. I took my chance and got a mouthful of the most horrible flavor I had ever encountered.

Today’s Biff squints.

    I can’t even get past the smell of the stuff.

    Beer, I mean. Not tomato soup.

    The closest I’ve gotten to drinking beer is Apple Cider. Sorry beer, other types of alcohol taste better!

    I’m a total wuss. The taste of alcohol reminds me of cough medicine (that always made me cough worse when trying to swallow it), and like cough medicine, the flavor of the alcohol wouldn’t go away fast enough no matter how much water I’d drink. I’m fairly certain that abstinence from alcohol is why I can’t take anything that’ll “relax” me or “help me sleep”. Anything that is supposed to relax me knocks me out for a day and a half. Anything that’s supposed to help me sleep makes me flip out halfway through the night.

      Well, quite some cough medicine does contain alcohol, because some of the agents in them are poorly water soluble.

    I drink tomato soup all the time. It’s good for the nerves. Absolutely delightful.

    Gee, I never knew there were other people that didn’t like beer, just like me! My family and friends think I’m strange because they love the stuff. It’s great to cook with though.

    beer is gross! I do like warm tomato soup though.

    I’ve tasted a few things, but I decided long ago that I wouldn’t drink. Sorry, alcohol, water tastes better, and Coke tastes best of all.

    When I was a little kid, I asked my Dad what beer tasted like, so he let me have a sip. I didn’t try alcohol again until I was 23. But I hate tomatoes.

    Wow. This reminded me of the time when I was around 3-5 years old, and my uncle let me try some of his beer. I spat it out… My mom, who was telling him not to let me try it right before the sip, was now laughing/getting paper towels. Good times.

    I don’t even like the smell of alcohol (aka ethanol, C2H5OH), never mind the taste of it.
