Since putting aside alcohol a year ago I’d forgotten what it was like to enjoy an after dinner beer buzz. Yumiko gave me a six pack for Christmas which I’m really enjoying. However, one beer in and I’ve come to the conclusion that adding alcohol to my evening is a little like inviting that annoying uncle over for dinner. Bad jokes, too much chatter and rude table manners ensue before half a bottle is gone. I’m sure Yumiko is glad she didn’t buy me a case.
