On another thread, somebody posted a web page that has this picture of me:



And the point of this thread is: the drink.

My friend Andrew enjoys beer. And he had bad day and needed to drink beer. So i went with him. I think beer tastes aweful. But I needed to have a drink with him, so when attempting to consume alcohol, my drink is: pina colada with extra fruit. When the drink arrived Andrew said "I have to get a picture of this."

Apparently there is some sort of novelty in seeing a giant man with this drink.

That picture has to be at least five years old now.

There is a time about two years ago where I once got one of these and some drunk guy said something - Jocelyn seems to think that was extra funny.

To me it always looked you had a sack of groceries tucked in your arm.

That's too funny, I thought it was groceries too -- then today, I thought it was a smoothie.
Cat's out of the bag now.

I lived in the West Indies for a few years.

We tended to avoid men who had umbrellas in their drinks. LOL

No way - I thought it was groceries too!

I always thought it was an odd photo to have as the 'cover' for the podcast - I thought "Hmm, groceries? Seems like he should be holding some carrots fresh out of the ground or something"

Paul, if that's what tastes good to you, carry on!

Many connoisseurs of booze would consider that concoction guilty of 'bruising' the alcohol. In other words, masking, altering or hiding the star ingredient.
Hard-core coffee drinkers feel the same way; try poring some cream and spooning sugar into a espresso shot and watch the barista's lips curl!

Many manly-men consider straight booze, along with cigars, guns and engine repair, the realm other fellow manly-men. You, with your resonant voice, large stature and woodsy style fit into the stereotype... Then you go and bust that assumption with a penchant for "girlie" drinks. I love it.

That being said, as someone who's dabbled in the world of beer/booze production, I know there is an extreme amount of work put into creating, balancing and mellowing flavors in most well crafted brews/distills. It does rankle a bit when someone goes and buries all that work under a bunch of sugary fruity stuff.

I enjoy mixing my booze with coffee; what does that say about me?

I made my in-laws a Thai stir-fry once - they immediately (prior to tasting) started pouring pepper and salt all over it ... I know your pain Chris

Ah! I never noticed the drink.

Was that picture taken at the DoubleTree Inn Restaurant in Missoula?
