I can't usually get 'em because my girlfriend's a vegetarian, which pretty much makes me a vegetarian. But I do enjoy the taste of a good burger...

I've noticed that this tends to depend on WHY she is a vegetarian. If it is a moral issue, you are pretty much screwed but I know a few who just don't like meat. Those have no problem with others eating meat.

at applebees over the weekend...

me: "what do you have on tap?"
waitress: "miller, coors, bud, blue moon, sam adams winter, troegs alpine something...alpine lace i think"

i was thoroughly confused...alpine lace is a is a brand of cheese. i think maybe they had sam adams alpine spring on and she mixed the two up. so i ordered the troegs and received their pale...(not cheese ale).

Oh sorry--that was a further Pulp Fiction reference. I'm married, and my wife loves to eat meat. She's also a carnivore.

See what I did there?

Wait, surely you are kidding. You have not seen this? I'm truly sorry but due to section 3a, paragraph 7, of the manhood charter.....

My boss just told me he was at Trinity brew house in Providence over the weekend. After looking through the menu, he asked the waitress if they had any domestic beers. The waitress laughed and said they're all domestic.

Went to the local Bennigans and asked what they had for craft beer. The waitress was having a tough time with remembering the list so she just brought tasters of like 3 of them so I could try them.

This is going above and beyond.

Then she delivered the Christmas Ale in a pilsner glass.

Several years ago, when my wife and I were still dating she took me by her dad's house to meet him for the first time. He's a BMC kind of guy who drinks something with pretty much every meal.

You'd think I'd want to make a good first impression here...

Anyway, she introduces me and he asks me if I'd like something to drink. I ask what he has and he says Coors Light. I then say that if I had a squirrel willing to piss in my mouth in one hand and a Coors Light in the other that I would still need to flip a coin to figure out which way to go. Lucky for me he'd killed more than a few brain cells over the years, so his initial response was a blank look at me then at her...Then he asks...Is that a no? At this point my future wife jumps in and tries to cover for me and says, that was a no, and he's just trying to be funny, blah, blah, blah...

To this day I have no idea why I said it, and especially at that particular moment....but I still think the statement is valid.

She still doesn't trust me talk to other grownups unsupervised

That is soooo funny!
I've been known to speak before I think and put my foot in my mouth. I think SWMBO waits for me to speak up just to see what I may say!
