My son celebrated his first communion Saturday, and we had most of the family over afterwards for a cookout.
As I was flipping burgers, Artist James called from Texas to tell me that his brother in-law David (who lives up here in Flyvover country) told him some very important news. The kind of news that that I would leave Christ himself waiting on my front porch to hear.
Shiner Bock is now available in Illinois!
As much as I wanted to hang up the phone immediately and drive to any number of suburban Chicago liquor stores right then and there, I decided that the Corona I bought (it was Cinco de Mayo afterall) would have to do.
The next day after completing a round of golf, I actually ran into David, the brother in-law, and he confirmed where he was able to buy Shiner Bock.
At 1:10 CST today, I bought a 12 pack of Shiner Bock.
I think this is the lord's way of telling me that the worst is over, and my life will start improving.
I'm taking my 12 pack home now so it will be cold around 8:30 tonight. I'll only have one.
Moderation in everything.
