Getting ready to imbibe

Well, not me personally – I am not much of a drinker – but drinking is exceedingly popular in our fair city, though. Just ask SCAN’s employees.

As we get closer to one of the main stress-inducing holidays (stressful for me since I have to say “thank you but I will be fine relaxing & watching TV” – no Santa visits my house this year.), I keep seeing hangover stuff everywhere! Pos, que fregados piensan?

I went to my local gas station and saw this goofy stuff for sale:

Resurrection, the anti-hangover? Puuuleez, just don't drink like idiots.

Right around the corner on the telephone posts were these curious “all-natural” prevention patches. Uh, does the FDA know anything about this? Anyway, they seemed to have been torn off a couple hours after I took these shots:

A prevention patch? Really?? Uh, I don't care how 'natural' that is, it is not going on my body.

But in case you had other ideas for the stress, if you didn’t go to the Farmers Market this past weekend, you missed a great sale by one of the Rotary Clubs:

I guess a dimebag could be homefarmed. Just kidding Rotarians!! I saw your plant pots, i know what you meant.

It was a joke, Rotarians, don’t beat me up.

Oh, talking about the Farmers Market – these guys didn’t need to have any alcohol in them to create a little scene:

The stand off

The audience settles in and the fighting begins

No, no, hermano. I am the one with the microphone interrupting the carolers, i will fight for us.

It's fine, hermano, we will stop disturbing the peace... for all of 10 minutes before we started to drown out the carolers again!

Maybe they should have tried the patch or the anti-cruda drink?

    The Christmas spirit(S) fill the air
    Whilst fools scoff and bray
    Carolers cram the square
    Heraldin’ the Lord’s birthday

    The liquid courage drink does wonders before a fight . Pot is the earth’s gift to mankind but the temperance movement doesn’t agree !
