Late Night Drinking Thoughts 18: ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
It’s a big moment in the history of this page; it’s the one-year anniversary of our top series; “Late Night Drinking Thoughts.” Over the last year, we’ve had 18 editions of this monumentally important series, all with one key similarity; alcohol.
Now for some people, they may not know how this series actually started; otherwise known as the “history” of it, if you will.
So back in November of last year, I was kind of in a bind one night on what to write for the following day. All of the ideas that I kept coming up with wouldn’t translate to a written format well, and my confidence started to dwindle little by little.
So what did I do? I drank! And when I drank, I began to write. And the content that came from it was………..actually pretty good!
However, it didn’t start off all “sunshine and rainbows” with this series. After the first couple of editions, I really didn’t see it going very far. So because of that, the dates that articles were being published started to get farther and farther apart.
BUT, something extraordinary happened. When I got up to about “Late Night Drinking Thoughts 6,” we started to pick up some steam. It began to get more popular, with more and more fans starting to share with their friends. Because of this, I knew that I had to pick up steam myself. Because of this, I started to average a couple more editions of this series a month.
Fast forward to present day, we are officially 18 articles deep into this fantastic series. And all I can say is, thank you! Thank you for reading, thank you for following, thank you for sharing, THANK YOU! It has been a pleasure to write 18 of these for you all, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
And as a gift, we’re going to have a quick “throwback” to end things here. We’re going to relive the VERY FIRST “Late Night Drinking Thoughts” to help celebrate this past year. I hope you enjoy it, and have a great night!
Late Night Drinking Thoughts
I wanted to write this article, even though a majority of you might be a little intoxicated at the moment, as a way to jot my stupid thoughts down from today. And hopefully, whether they are drunk or sober responses, we can get some answers for the stupidity that went through my brain.
So, without further ado, here are some of my late night drinking thoughts;
Why do parents still put their kids on “kid-leashes?” I mean really, is there really a need for these? You’re still going to be too pre-occupied with your phone, to the point where you are not going to see “Little Suzy” knock over that beautiful display of dish soaps. Or you’ll be caught in a dramatic battle of wits with the cashier over a coupon, and you won’t see “Little Tommy” spilling his snack all over the floor. So what’s the point of them if the kid’s still going to do what they want?
When it begins to snow, people stop knowing how to drive. And I’m not talking about going slow or playing it safe, because I respect that. BUT, when you start to tailgate someone while it’s slippery, you’re an idiot! (And that’s just ONE of the many things these morons like to do).
How have we not had ketchup and mustard in the same bottle yet? And if we did, how have I never seen it before? I mean, unless you are from Chicago, these two condiments tend to go hand-in-hand. These two condiments are CONSTANTLY seen together on every table in EVERY hot dog and burger joint in America. AND, if they are not, then they are sitting next to each other SOMEWHERE in that building.
Granted, it means you will have less ketchup and mustard in your home. But you’ll still make a BOAT LOAD of money from it being a novelty/something new.
The squirrel is the BRAVEST S.O.B on planet earth. It’s hard to compare it to any other animal, because these little bastards toy around with death on a DAILY basis. I mean, have you seen them out there? They will literally sit on the side of the road, wait until you are mere FEET from their body, and then decide to take off.
But once they bolt, that last second “I’m going to die” thought rolls through their mind, and they will more than likely run back to where they started.
