“Taking a Break from the IPA”
If you’re anything like me (and let’s all hope you’re not) there’s nothing better in this world than when you find a new beer you like. Food tastes better. The sun shines brighter. That thing that you hate about yourself doesn’t seem like such a big deal.
But the problem is that somewhere along the line I stopped trying new and different beers and only started trying new and different IPAs. In my defense, it’s because IPA’s are awesome and delicious and make the fact that I can’t seem to finish any book I start seem like a lovable character flaw instead of the soul crushing disappointment I have to face when I look in the mirror once a week or so (also don’t like the shape of my head).
So Ive decided to not drink for a while.
IPA’s. I’ll still drink beer. I’m not a crazy person.
And since today is Friday I am going to stop at my favorite store and pick up a six pack of something that can best be described as “not an IPA” for the weekend. Will it be a wheat beer? A red? A stout? I dunno, man. Why are you asking me so many questions?
So tonight I’m going to go get something new. Something different. Something I haven’t tried before. I’m going to take time sipping it. Try to connect with something else. And maybe, in the end, learn a little something about myself.
Just kidding about that last part. I’m gonna watch 30 Rock reruns on Netflix.
