    I Found Myself Laughingly Saying, "NO NO NO NO"

    A young person was at the house today and noticed a bottle of Grand Marnier in the corner cabinet.

    I told said person about warming said when they retorted they liked it over ice and....gasp...mixed with LESSER flavored liquors.

    I'm still a little shakey. I blame Trump.

    I was on a business trip in the last few weeks... a co-worker got one of the best sipping whiskies in the house which was locally renowned, and he asked for it with Coke and ice. At least he liked it. Part of me says to each their own, but there was some internal cringing going on for sure.

    And this is why I buy cheap triple sec in lieu of Grand Marnier, for the purpose of mixing.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    Was at a nice Italian restaurant, sitting at the bar, waiting for a table. I know the bartender. Some chick at a table of douchebags orders a Cosmo made with Grey Goose. The BT makes a big display of pouring from the Grey Goose bottle...except he has his thumb over the pour spout. Then, under the bar, he pours the cheap 'well brand' vodka. Of course, she never noticed the difference, and her douchey date paid $6 extra for the drink!

    The idea of using ice with fine scotch, whiskey or brandy makes the hackles on my neck stand up.

    Can't you just warm it up in the microwave before you wash it down with a beer chaser????

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    I have a touch of dyslexia... mostly just some fairly minor letter transpositions inside fairly simple words.

    For years and years, until I heard somebody talking about Grand Marnier, I thought it was Grand Mariner, referring to a seagoing person, a ship's captain even, who is really large or wonderful.

    That's all I got for this thread.

    While I question the taste of the order, what the bartender did is called fraud.
