Beer, denied.

It doesn’t look like there is going to be a beer review this week. Tomorrow I go in for my next procedure; I highly doubt I will be in the mood to drink a beer for the next couple of days. I was going to sneak one in tonight. According to the sheet I’m not supposed to eat anything for 12 hours and not supposed to drink anything but clear liquids. Well, certain beers are clear! I could just get one of those!

Then Ktreva started guarding the fridge with a marble rolling pin. I figured that maybe she’s not wanting me to drink a beer tonight. Sorry to disappoint everyone.

However, in the meantime, I have a question for everyone. While driving around the last couple of weeks I’ve actually started paying attention to the people driving the vehicles around me. Normally I just pay attention to the vehicle itself. In that time I’ve noticed that small females drive at least 66% of the large SUVs on the road. Is this something unique to my area or is this happening all over the place?

Good lord - you haven't been paying attention have you. It's probably a higher percentage than that in the Chicago burbs. It's more like 75% there - and they are generally short women driving the biggest SUV's they can find.

When my son worked at the Starbucks drive thru - he hated these women on rainy days. They'd pull up with their wipers going and he'd get a face full of water from the wipers... they thought it was "cute" - try telling him that after 8 hours. No he didn't like them at all. LOL.

In the meantime - all apendages are crossed that tomorrow (or should I say today) goes well for you. Make sure they don't do the wrong procedure. *grin*

Ditto on what Teresa said about tomorrow... er, today.

You should see it down here, man. I'd say that about 80%, at the very least, are women. And they drive the beasts like they are driving a compact car. Scary as hell.

Hey now. I drive an SUV and I'm smallish. But I'm a good driver.

Good luck with your procedure.

I'm small, but I don't drive an SUV - I drive a pickup truck.

But lots of women are driving larger SUVs, because they're good for hauling kids and friends and groceries and sports stuff and lots of other things, but still have a bit of an edge that you can't ever manage with a mini-van.

Wishing you the best with your procedure.

Good luck, man.

As for the vehicle thing, I'm six foot tall, almost 300lbs, and I drive... a minivan...

Sorry, but I refuse to pay the extra markup car companies charge for SUV's to be "trendy". If I need a truck, I'll buy a truck, if I need a van, I drive my van.

As long as I can cart the kids around and still have room for all my reenacting shit, I'm happy.
