    Embarrassing Bourbon Moments

    I was reorganizing my liquor cabinet and thinking I was alone, gave the label of one of my rarer bottles a light kiss. Girlfriend walked into the room the moment it happened and asked me if her eyes had deceived her [in a judgemental tone].


    Does anyone else have an embarrassing bourbon moment? (Stories that were the result of having one too many are more than welcome)

    Sorry, but your question comes a little late. I've reached the age where I'm pretty much immune or inured to embarrassment.... bourbon-related or otherwise.

    At least now she knows where your priorities lie. If she still marries you, you've got it made.

    Oh that is CLASSIC! Laughed out loud. Wish I had as good a story to share! Being caught lovingly gazing at my collection is all I've got.

    Re: Embarrassing Bourbon Moments

    I've posted this before, but it fits here too:

    I do some contract work at Nursing Homes on the side. I deal with residents diets and one of which is labeled as "NAS" for "No Added Salt" (mainly for cardiac patients).

    There was a new nurses aide training. At breakfast she looked at the residents meal card and asked me "What does NAS stand for?"

    Of course my response was "No age statement."

    Got to pay more attention at work.....

    It would seem that either definition of NAS might apply in a nursing home--or anyplace where mentioning a lady's age might be construed as lack of good breeding.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Too funny...

    Heheh, I could relate a few, the latest being my girlfriend's comment when confronted with the recent growth of assorted bottles within the bar area- as opposed to those bottles hiding down in the bunker, a place she is mostly unaware of.

    You should get a few miniatures. Then they will really look like they are breeding.

    Be very OCD about it and get miniatures that are different expressions from the same distilleries that are already in your collection.
