Why is it that a buzz from beer feels different, more mellow, than a buzz from liquor? I'm sure there's an answer, I just don't know it. All you experts out there may be able to shed some light.
I haven't been drinking beer for very long. I used to say that I'd never get hooked on it. But beer is cheap, and since I go out 1-2 times per week, the liquor was getting too expensive. (Which is why I now very happily allow strange men to buy my drinks!) My friends drink beer, so they would buy a pitcher and invite me to help myself. I started doing that, cause of the cheapness issue, and one day I just started liking it. One day, literally.
Now my idea of fun is sitting outside in the evening and enjoying a cold beer. I mean, iced tea would also be lovely, but it takes more work to make. And the buzz from iced tea just isn't as good. ;)
So someday (let's say at the exmo conference in October) we need to all get together and enjoy a good beer. Like Sideon, I don't need the "recovery" discussions. I just want to meet everyone IRL, and have some good times. What do you say?
