First... our soundtrack, the new-to-me Amy Rigby with an interesting tune:
Jeanie is my new husband’s exwifeIt looks like she’s gonna be a part of my lifeCause there’s a couple of kids and twenty some years they shareSo I guess Jeanie isn’t going anywhereI even tried to hate her like I thought I shouldBut since we met she’s been nothing but goodAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s alrightAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s so niceWould somebody explain to me this modern life?How can I pick up where she never left offWe’re like a club of two who’ve seen him with his clothes offAnd there’s nowhere to hide because it’s all out in the lightCan I help if I’m a little bit uptightI must admit I don’t know how I’m supposed to actShe’s hugging me instead of stabbing my backAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s alrightAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s so niceWould somebody explain to me this modern life?The trouble with Jeanie isThe trouble with Jeanie isI’ve heard of divorces where bitterness forcesExtreme mortal combat and I wouldn’t want thatBut I hadn’t planned on something quite so hands onInstead of a blessing, it seems to be messing with my mindAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s alrightAnd the trouble with Jeanie is she’s so niceAnd the trouble with Jeanie is I’m uptightWould somebody explain to me this modern life?The trouble with Jeanie isThe trouble with Jeanie is
I don't often post the complete lyrics to the tunes we play during Happy Hour but these lyrics are just too good not to do so. I've heard of relationships with ex's like this but I've never actually seen one; the relationship between my ex-wives... such as it was... could never have been put in these terms. My experience is prolly typical and it's a shame more aren't like that about which Ms. Rigby sings. I like this tune... a lot.
But on to better things, in a manner o' speaking. Here's what we're drinkin' today:
I'll freely admit the colorful carrier caught my eye but it was the selection of beers... an ale, a lager, this Porter, and one other... that made me jump. Didja see the legend on the bottle? "Pay the ferryman." Heh. I loves me my beer and I loves it even MORE when it's frickin' literate. Now, that said... the beer is a lil bit thin for a Porter... more like a dark lager, actually... but it's eminently drinkable, sorta a "summer Porter," if there's such a thing. I'd like to let you know what the Pros From Dover think about this beer but they apparently haven't tasted it yet. Chalk one up for me... this is the very first time I've had a beer that the Alström Brothers haven't. Yay, me!
My bottom line? I like it and I'll most certainly buy more. It beats the livin' hell outta what The Most Interesting Man In The World drinks. By far. (Short parenthetical: We're talkin' Mexican beer here, dontcha know. And DON'T even start me up about freakin' Corona. Bleah.)
