I like good scotch, too. Also love martinis. But, being retired, I have a lot of time to drink.
Can’t seem to drink scotch, or martinis, for 6 hours. Too much dopamine?
What can I say? Beer is proof that God loves us.
Ah, an addict experiencing withdrawal symptoms. The body speaks! Give me caffeine!
