Fantasy Time

available at Macy's
I have this fantasy...

Where I'm a bartender. I love drinking and entertaining, and work well under pressure. I'm friendly and good at making small talk. I can easily relate to people, people like me.

I just think I would make an outstanding bartender.

I can make simple drinks who can't, and we keep well, we used to keep, before we expanded our little family a nicely stocked bar. If we had more expendable cash, my bar would be dangerous.

We used to host these little get together's  where I would practice making a certain new cocktail or a couple of different ones using a certain spirit. I had so much fun doing it, and expanding my repertoire.

The hubby and I are hooked on this show on Spike called Bar Rescue. My favorite part is watching the expert mixologist come up with a new drink menu for the bar they are trying to rescue. I want to take a bartending class so bad, but it's just not in my budget currently.

You gotta check this show out! 
I realize that the whole thing is so tempting because I'm not around drunks. The thing is, I'm a drunk and I don't think I'm an asshole when I drink. In fact I think I'm a fun drunk. But I understand not everyone is like me when they drink. The hours would suck, probably. and if it was a job full of responsibilities, I may not enjoy it as much as I think I would. Not to mention I wouldn't get to do any of the drinking...


So for now, I'll just keep dreaming about the fun I could have making money, making drinks.

  1. Yeah, you and I definitely need to get together in real life sometime. I had a job as a bartender in college and it WAS everything you imagine it to be. :-)

    You can flip shakers for me anytime! I'll buy the booze!

    1. You got it! Now I'm even more motivated to qualify/run Boston. The hubby has no interest in going to Boston so...

  2. Bar Rescue came and rescued two local bars here, and they went back to their old ways as soon as they left. Even tore down the new signs! I guess they didn't really need help; they just wanted to be on tv...

    1. And/Or they wanted to give their place a free upgrade. They really fix those bars up. I always hate when the update tells you they went back to their old ways...

      you can lead a horse to water...

    1. Yeah, I look at bars in a whole new away. The hubby does too. One night he was meeting co workers for drinks and he actually text me about his first impression and how ladies would probably be scared away...lol, funny
