Staying Home Today

I regard St. Patrick's Day as one of the three amateur-drinking holidays. No doubt that the cops will be out in force and that there will be no shortage of drunks behind the wheel as the day winds on.

Going out to eat in a crowded bar/restaurant is not my idea of fun. So I'll stay home whilst Erin goes "breaaghh".

New Year's, and what is the third? I agree with you. Amateur drunks are the worst.

Thanksgiving, according to some cops I know.

Probably Independence day is in there somewhere close.

Cinco de Mayo is #3.

Interesting...I would not have thought that would be in the top 10.
You never know.

Saint Patrick was kind of a dick anyway, when you think about it.

Well, Doug, you get kidnapped from your home and dragged to a new land and see how pissed you get?

Comrade Misfit said...

CP88, then Juneteenth should be the Mother of All Parties.

CenterPuke88 said...

Comrade, rather the Mutha of All Parties? Regardless, all those days were terrible days to be driving pizza delivery in the 80's. While the tips were good, the other drivers were scary.
