Don’t actually drink a lot of rum out and about
A wrassling buddy: We have to take it slow, I’m feeling old today.
Me: I feel old every day.
I’m supposed to be meeting my buddy Gene from Flow Athletics at some point this week. We were actually supposed to meet up for a glass of rum but I told him that I didn’t actually drink much rum out in the world.
In fact, when I’m out and about, I’ll more likely order an Old Fashioned with Rye or a Vodka Tonic or even just a beer. And the reason is because most places carry just regular rum, which I don’t drink except in a pina colada or a daiquiri (not a frozen daiquiri).
The difference between regular rum and aged rum is the difference between moonshine and whiskey.
Aging rum and moonshine makes them different, better.
Like most people, I suppose.
And at the few places that do actually carry aged rum, carry stuff that I already have at home – or stuff a lot worse than the stuff I have at home.
These are the trials and tribulations of a rum drinker.
So it all works out in the end.
