Lowest Common Denominator

Here is the current dietary situation at the Red A household:

One woman who is eating vegetarian for 49 days. This would be the Taoist/Buddhist vegetarianism which means no garlic or onions. They are stimulants don't you know? Up there with meth.

One woman who is a Muslim and does not eat pork.

Two children who are not allowed to eat beef due to Taoist/Buddhist religious reasons. I have tried to explain that American cows want you to eat them, because otherwise the rancher would have no reason to keep feeding and breeding them. It's a good genetic deal for the cows.

One man who can eat whatever he damn well pleases but who shouldn't eat some foods due to gout. Plus I don't like seafood. You do realize that shrimp are like cockroaches of the sea.

Its like we're a microcosm of India, 40% Hindu, 20% Muslim, 20% Jain, and 20% British colonial official with gout and a glass of lager.

Dude, we aren't hippies. The Mom determines what religious bullshit you damn will be doing, whether you like it or not. Drink you Fu Shwei.

Rye says about 2:00;


Did Kevlar ghost write your comment?

P.S. - Rye and I would like to see you out there tomorrow. Maybe I'll bring some garlic wine.

Karl said...

Dean, thank you for writing "brewery", and not the thrice-accursed "beer factory".

Can someone give me directions to the brewery?

Red A said...

Karl, can you pick me up?

2:00 p.m.

Karl said...

Probably, but you're not really my type. HA HA HA HA HA!

But seriously folks, I gotta be careful about starting drinking too early in the day. Y'all know how I get. So I was thinking of going 2:00 - 3:00ish. Does that time work?

Rye said...

I'm with Karl on that. Drinking to early can lead to bad driving.

I think 3-ish is a reasonable time to start.
