Hefty Dose Of Life Experience: (perspective # 0002)

 “Black Velvet Woes”
   If there ever was an alcoholic drink that goes down so easy and tastes great, it’s Black Velvet. One time my former Father In-law received a gallon jug of this evil nectar as a Christmas gift from his subordinates form work. I was helping him set up for his yearly Christmas party when he asked me to assist him in going up into the woods above his house to retrieve a Christmas tree. It was cold as hell and there was 6 to 8 inches of snow on the ground and it took about an hour or so to get the tree. When we got back rather then offering the traditional hot chocolate to help warm us up, he suggested cracking open the bottle of Black Velvet. Big mistake! By the time the party got started we were both feeling no pain. I from what I can remember had one hell of a time. The last thing I remember is being escorted by my Mother-in-law up the steps to bed.
   The next morning (late the next morning) I was told I was the life of the party. I was dancing and singing and conversing with everyone. Even after they realized I had a little too much to drink and was taken upstairs to bed, I apparently with good intent kept coming back down to say my good nights and to wish everyone a last Merry Christmas. This wouldn’t have been so bad they said except I was in my underwear.
To this day I can’t drink Black Velvet. And I recommend hot chocolate as a beverage of choice to warm you up after a cold encounter, and don’t start drinking before the party gets started. If you do, except the embarrassment.
