That Boilermaker Feeling



The image of dropping a shot glass of whiskey into a pint of beer occurred to me while standing in my bank's parking lot. Perhaps that is why people drink Boilermakers.... It must be the congruency to life that so implodes their reason and quickly embalms their thought. Can't imagine that they do it for the taste! I enjoy beer and I enjoyed whiskey too much one fall but I've not had a boilermaker before...

That sinking shot glass full of whiskey type feeling... Exiting the bank I drove to the local community college to enroll in a course. Well, to embark on a certificate seeking course. (I am a seeker of certificates.) There are 2 turns to be made after you exit the highway, one at the end of the exit and another at the first intersection. I managed to make 2 wrong turns going there, and one coming back. I hope such brain fuzz is not an indicator for the success of this newish adventure!

When searching for a boilermaker picture I found the Hillary Clinton one. What I like about it is, her eyes are definitely crossed.

The "boilermaker" picture is actually a jagerbomb. I couldn't find a boilermaker pic. I briefly considered going to a bar and ordering one, but, well, that was not a difficult impulse to ignore!

Could never drink one of those..Don't care for the mix..Beer alone is nice..I can understand why Hillary's eyes are crossed..

Knowing this is Jägermeister makes me a little more nauseated to think of drinking it lol. I have never done one & probably never will. In Ireland they call this a car bomb. Come to think of it, no, I think that is Guinness with a 1/2 shot of each Baileys & Jameson dropped in. Again, nauseated.

What class?

that Guinness drink sounds more nauseating than a boilermaker! Didn't think that possible!

I've got a contest up over at my place. The prize is 10 (crummy ) CDs, almost guaranteed to make your eyes cross :-) Why not come over and take a shot (so to speak.)

Hi Chris. Good Luck with your upcoming class. I haven't had hard liquour for a long, long time. And I have never tried anything close to what was pictured. Interesting how you thought of that when you were in the bank parking lot.
