Thankful---In this economy I am thankful to be working and making money. I am thankful that my son is normal teenager, with all the hell that come with it, but a normal teenager nonetheless.
Thoughtful---I have a big trip planned to Las Vegas next week, my son really wants to attend this gamers convention there, so I thought it would be a good time for me to take a few days off. My sister also signed me up for the Madame Evangeline's Dating Service 1NS, so we’ll see if that pans out. Though her reputation is excellent, I really doubt she can find the perfect woman for me. But my sister is so convinced I need it, I will do anything to get her to drop the subject.
Thirsty---Right now, in this heat, I have been enjoying my Kentucky Colonel. It's more refreshing then bourbon straight up. And refreshing enough for the summer nights when I need something to help me unwind. Not easy when you have a teenage boy rolling his eyes at you every time you open your mouth. This is a much better choice then kicking him in the ass.
1 1/2 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz Benedictine
1 twist of Lemon peel
Stir bourbon and Benedictine add crushed ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Add the twist of lemon peel and serve.
