Tonight, I was in a strange mood.
Not good, not particularly bad. I guess nostalgic would be a good description. Makes sense, anyway.
I tried a couple of times to call SpikeBoy to see if he was in the mood to do something besides Rich O's tonight, but I couldn't get in touch with him. Oh well, can't say I didn't try.
So what I ended up doing first, to help make up for not going to the cemetery today, was go to The Hitching Post and have myself a Falls City (24) in Dad's honor. Straight from the can like a real man would drink it.
I talked to the bartender for a bit, told her what I was doing there, but she'd only been working there for a couple of years so she didn't remember Dad. On the way out some dude initiated the brief conversation depicted two entries ago.
Next, big surprise, I went to Rich O's. There, big surprise, I had a Bell's Kalamazoo Stout (95).
I started out sitting at the island, talking with ExBartender and CoffeeDude, but then this old fuckhead sat with us and he pissed me off so I went and stood at the bar and talked with FutureDude for a while.
My next beer was an Avery Old Jubilation Ale (50), which I haven't had in a year and which was quite yummy.
After a while DooRagGirl (FutureDude's girlfriend) came in so I went to White Castle and then came home.
The kitty wasn't at White Castle tonight, for those of you who care about that sort of thing.
