Today’s Reason To Drink

A new study just came out that basically says drinking alcohol makes the heart grow more sorrowful. In other words, if you’re drinking to forget, it’s not going to work. I’m not all that convinced. The study tortured rats for weeks to come to this conclusion. What could rats be drinking to forget? Having plagues blamed on them for centuries?

Of course we all know that drinking won’t make our bad memories go away. The next day our issues will be front and center, along with a throbbing headache. But for four frickin’ hours, we can be happy, jolly and, yes, forget about the dark clouds hovering above. You got a problem with that?

    “turn that frown upside down son!” why haven’t we seen that as a tag line in any beer or spirits ad?
