Good Neighbors

As an active participant of the neighborhood beer-chugging club I didn't know existed, I was invited to a beer-chugging event. It was on the edge of town and I ended up meeting a lot of people local to to 'hood. To my great surprise, the majority of us were Texans. As beer-chugging Texans are wont to do, the subject of Lone Star arose, and those of us around the same age group waxed it poetic.

The day before Thanksgiving, the beer-fairy delivered a 12-pack to my door, returning from a recent trip to Waco. I think I'm going to like it here.

Where is here these days? I thought you were still in Newton. The implication in this sentence is that you moved recently.

Affirmative, still in Newton. And yes, yes it does. I moved out, then back in. So yeah, seeing the neighborhood (and its resident neighbors) in a little different light.

I need a beer fairy! :) I have never tried Lone Star, but am quite partial to Shiner. Fortunately, Shiner is actually sold here. The beer fairy wouldn't need to make a hundreds of miles trek on my behalf. Just sayin'.

Seriously, that was very nice!

Its not as good as Shiner. In fact its known far and wide as a pretty standard lackluster choice. That said, its uniqueness has more of a reminiscent quality to it.

In short, you're not missing anything.
