Good Advice?

Posted by Seeking Solace |

Last night at our hotel, the halfway point of our trip, Husband went out to get some food for dinner. He stopped at a grocery store to pick up some beer. He was standing in line with two 20 oz. Budweisers when a lady approached him.

Woman: You shouldn't be drinking that stuff, son. You need to get high on the Lord!

To his credit, Husband just smiled. If I were there, I'd probably start laughing.

I wonder if the Lord has good stuff....

Interesting...I probably would have made a strange face and not given a response as well.

Ah, why I won't leave the North. Wonder if she'd say the same to wine? Jesus drank wine. For the record, my word verification is "wasted" :)

I once heard a funny story about a seminarian who came home for christmas to see his grandmother. She saw him getting a six pack of beer out of his truck and she scolded him. Is that what they're teaching you in that seminary? No, grandma. But you know, Jesus did drink wine. Grandma's reply: And I think the less of him for it!

Ah yes, the south.

I assure you that not everyone down here is like that, and there are obnoxious religious freaks like that in the North as well, y'all.

I would have laughed as well.
