Good Friday? No, My Friend. Great Friday.
Today's gonna be a Good Friday, and I don't mean in the Christian sense. There will be no crucifixions (well, maybe in the Phillipines but not at my house), no scourging at any pillars, no crowning of thorns. I expect no...zero...nada interference from my Jewish neighbors. I'll walk over there shortly and inform them that if they want to throw stones at someone, they'd better not be throwing them at me.
Instead, Kris and I are taking half the day off to grill out, drink beer, and enjoy the day with friends. "But wait, Mag, you don't need to take off work half a day to drink beer!" Ahh, but yes I do. Kris and I are sitting on a bounty of fine beers from last weekend's foray into Wisconsin. We've got Stone, Oskar Blues, Dark Horse and even some Hitachino just asking to be drank (drinked? drunk?)...not to mention a bevy of many other bevvies.
Damn it's good being an upstanding, red-blooded, beer-drinking American!
