    Re: Do you have it?

    Symptom number 72:

    You travel with more bourbon than you and several of your friends can manage to consume (or even get around to tasting) in a weeks time.

    Double points if none of the bottles you traveled with is available in either the state you left from or the state you are traveling to.

    Yep. Still have it. Made a batch of chili tonight for my wife, for her work's annual chili shootout. Last year I tried bourbon chili. This year she said no. So, I made it anyway. I just drank the bourbon instead of putting it in the chilli. My name is Joe..........

    Symptom number 328:

    You travel with several days worth of whiskey, even for day trips, just in case the unforeseen might happen, you know like hurricanes striking Indiana or Ice Storms or broken down pickups...

    My wife says I have enough whiskey but I know she can't be right because there is whiskey I don't have.

    Symptom 742:

    When you fly with only carry-on luggage, there is always a 50ml of bourbon in your ziplock bag for carry-on liquids, just in case.

    With careful planning, I think you can get about 7 mini bottles in your quart bag ... (may need to stretch the plastic just a bit) ... who needs shampoo and toothpaste anyway? Use the stuff the Hotel gives you ...

    Going out of town with the wife to look for dining room/patio furniture. I have the trip planned to coincide with liquor stores in the immediate area of the furniture stores. A little dusty hunting perhaps? My name is still Joe, and............... Joe
