Transparency

"Where are they?" I muttered as I rummaged through my friend's kitchen cabinet.

My friend's daughter was watching. "What are you looking for?" she asked.

"A bourbon glass."

"They should be in there."

"I can't find them," I said. "Maybe I should use a cereal bowl instead."

"Whatever stops the tears," she said.

Snag said...

It's sort of a blur after that.

"I can't find them,"

It would certainly be easier if they WEREN'T TRANSPARENT. A design flaw there.

Glass? What is this glass of which you speak?? We're not that picky up there... I'd suggest hollowing out an ear of corn and using that. :)

Sounds about right.
AND
that was the best quote of the weekend.

Jennifer said...

Also, we're now going to have to get a designated bourbon bowl. It will be kept in the Snag Lair for safekeeping.

Von- you forgot... noodles and balls...

See, SOMEONE was taking notes.

Can't read mine. Looks like ...."snarffflegghzz."

Jennifer said...

I was trying to remember what I told you to write down... it was probably, "Cottage Cheese"!!!

And, if Snag would have let us film him, we could have kept his blog in YouTubes for the next year! It would have sounded exactly like his blog and he wouldn't have had to lift a finger.

it is funny that all our blogs sound EXACTLY LIKE our IRL personas.

including the zombie thing. Zom nom nom nom.

Jennifer said...

I was thinking that at some point on Saturday evening.

However, MenD's blog does not make breakfast potatoes anywhere near as good as the ones the IRL MenD made. Of course, they were only helped by the addition of Bob's Produce Ranch smoked breakfast sausage.

whatever stops the tears, Jennifer.

..yeah, that one's gonna stick.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

We're not that picky up there..

that's certainly true. I remember using the Chicago Bears pint glass for whiskey.

....not long after, Wife Sublime decided it was time to pour me into the car and take me home.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

...speaking of the whiskey, was that my cob-logger represented in liquid form?

Jennifer said...

that's certainly true. I remember using the Chicago Bears pint glass for whiskey.

Would you have preferred a Packers pint glass?? Pffft. We do draw the line somewhere.

Grizzled and I are trying to figure out what happened to a lot of the glassware. There is a significant amount missing. I think one of his brother's poker parties went awry.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Actually, I was more referring to the size of the glass.

The whiskey, in addition to stopping the tears, anesthetized me to the Bears.

did you check MenD's carryon?

Brando said...

A glass? This sounds much fancier that I thought it would be. I envisioned that bottle being passed around an open fire while you waited for the moose to finish cooking.

Jennifer said...

If they confiscate his "Feel Canadian Instantly" breath spray, I'm going to go kick some airline ass... or send a Zombie to do it.

And no... glassware was awol before any of you ne'er-do-wells showed up. I had noticed it earlier in the week, but wasn't worried, assuming Snag would have used Brando's method.

Jennifer said...

Von! I've got the perfect photo.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

send it, Jennifer. Send it to me.

Yeah, well the moose isn't a very good cook, so something had to be done...

My friend's daughter was watching.

Snag forgot to specify whether she was the youngest or the oldest of the two.

Jennifer said...

the youngest or the oldest of the two.

I heard that herr smartass.

fish said...

There are three.
