Beam and ginger? WTF? My plan is bourbon/Scotch rocks: more bang, less pissin'. I don't mind Beam, but I wouldn't puss it up with ginger ale.
Remember who we're talkin' about here. This is the same guy who played golf on Friday and Saturday, while I was at work/in class. He then wants me to come over and help him paint his house during my four-hour break between Sunday shifts.
Love the guy, but man...he continues to test my limited spiritual virtue of patience.
