WHAT'S THE WORD?
THUNDERBIRD!
While in the men's room at work brushing my pearly whites, I was thinking about an incident that happened like 15 years ago. Don't ask me why I was thinking about it but I was..... It was the summer 1993 and my friend Boike and I were out at the lake, I think, cutting a tree down or something and he got a couple of bottles of Thunderbird which is a REALLY REALLY REALLY cheapo wine... I think he said something like "DUDE, I got us a couple bottles of Thunderbird and we soooooo have to chug them down." My thinking was WHAT THE HECK, WHY NOT!?! Kripes! We were young and, as I look back, pretty stupid too. So we start chugging and Boike has no problem but I have a very hard time with it. I can only chug it halfway before I start to gag..... it was some really strong stuff..... Fast forward 15 years and I'm STILL reliving it and thinking of what a failure I am BUT I realized that it's not made for chugging, it's for sipping on..…
