So. Scared.

My husband used to brew his own beer. Pretty damn good stuff, too. However, with the kids, he really hasn't brewed anything in about 7 or 8 years.

He just went to get a big boiling pot out of a closet and moved one of his bottles out of the way. He still has all of the empty bottles he uses for whenever he starts brewing again.

HE FOUND ONE STILL FULL FROM HIS LAST BATCH!

I started getting scared about the time he got an evil grin and put it in the fridge.

Umm. It's 7 or 8 years old. I'll let you try it first.

You might have solved the alternative fuels conundrum!

Oh no. We've got that solved right here in our own house. Just hook a hose up to the BG's butt and the entire planet could run indefinitely.

Ack!! If it was wine I'd be really excited, but the old beer thing reminds me of an old Stephen King short story. Do you remember the one I'm talking about?

Oh! Do you mean 'Grey Matter'? Where the guy drinks a beer gone bad and starts changing and eating roadkill, people and sending people out for more beer? :)

Was that the name of it? All I remember is something about his son coming home and finding a festering oozing pile of dreck insead of his father, and all because his dad drank an old beer.

Ever since I read that (I think I was about 10) I WILL NOT eat from dented cans and will not drink or eat anything past its expiration date. That story crosses my mind Every. Single. Time. I open the pantry. It still freaks me out.

So please pass on DH's old beer, please?

*laugh* I've been reading this to Scott as it's been going on. When I read your comment, he said 'Well, it is GS'.

I said 'What are you implying? She's crazy?'

'Umm, yeah'

'I know. She's the other half of me.'

'Oh, I believe that'

'You saying I'm crazy?'

'Absolutely. I've known that for years.'

'But I'm YOUR crazy!'

I can't wait for you to meet my hubby. :) He already thinks he knows you just from hearing me talk and reading him things.

Can't you get botulism from that?

Also, thanks for the suggestion. I finally found the Elvis Reese's and they are THE SHIT! I love faux-banana taste. :)

At least I'm not the only one!!! My husband thinks I'm crazy for liking the fake-banana taste.

Of course, I'm not the one considering a beer older than our kids. :)

Beer older than your kids = CRAZY!!!

Friends who talk you out of it = NOT crazy!!

Please explain the difference to your DH. If he doesn't understand, tell him I'll come over there and make him wear the potty seat on his head! (after he's done puking thought it)

he should first label it.

"PRE 9/11 BEER"

bet he could sell it on eBay for $1000 or so.
