Whiskey neat. Something that I enjoy, but have not become accustom to yet. It smells great. The aroma of twice filtered, vanilla, carmel, and apple notes, a bit of oak, and no sharp edges. I repeat, no.sharp.edges…

To start, I want to be clear, drinking alcohol is not something that should be praised, only a justified appreciation is warranted. Too many people find themselves snared by the temptation of alcohol rather than seeking out an understanding of its simplicity. Intent is key. Better to stay away from it all together then to be swayed by its sophisticated and/or cheap charm. Good can come of it, but it will invite more evil then it is worth. So, better to stay away all together. It really is optional

Which brings me to my point. The charisma found in many things is optional, you can either choose to take it or leave it. It depends on you. Truly, the choice is yours. If you decide to indulge, it does not mean you have to become an advocate for it; whatever it is. You can choose to partake in moderation (if it is legal). Do not let it destroy you, if you do or if it does, remember it was your choice. 

I call this turf ‘n’ turf. It’s a 16 oz T-bone and a 24 oz porterhouse. Also, whiskey and a cigar. I am going to consume all of this at the same time because I am a free American. – Ron Swanson
