    Re: Broken Glencairn

    I broke a small snifter at my ten year high-school reunion last year. I had waaaaay too much Knob Creek that night. Sloppy motor skills and reflexes come with the territory, I guess.

    Re: Broken Glencairn

    Well, it all my years of drinking I have never broken bottle… and did I pick a shitty time to start.

    For those of you that have the ORVW 23 yr, be careful when you pull that crystal stopper out. It is in there super snug and as I pulled mine out, it clipped the decanter… sending crystal parts all over.

    I salvaged about half of the bottle, but the decanter I was looking forward to as much as the incredible bourbon… it no longer

    I am remarkable calm for such a disastrous event… but I think I may still be in shock

    I am crying for you.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    LOL if that makes you guys even, Em you might want to change your avatar to a fancy script of "FU" for him before he ponders too much.

    I will say that thanks to reading that story I no longer feel AS bad for breaking Hectic Bob's Julio's OWA.
