I was walking toward the subway station when I spotted some young campaign women on the corner handing out something. Owing to ongoing construction and a reduction in public space thanks to additions to the building, this has been a rare sighting. In the past I have received cookies, pizza, crackers, tennis balls, subway tokens, five dollar gift cards to the book store, a blanket that my cat adopted as his own, gardening gloves, and a very small McSteamy/McDreamy T-shirt.
As I approached them, they asked if I would like a beer. I answered yes, and they gave me one. That’s right, free beer. Since drinking outside is illegal (though smoking pot is okay) I wasn’t really prepared for the promotion or maybe because I was really tired and not paying as much attention to my surroundings as I should have been. I should have said that I needed two as I do not like to drink alone. Quite a few people did not accept the beer. I suppose had I been charming and smiled a lot, I could have had four.
Even though the Raptors are on, I cannot give you a full beer review at this time. I am too tired and I do not want to write something I cannot fully support.
Sometimes I have to dig deep for Today’s Perfect Moment. Sometimes, I need quite a bit of reflection before making my decision. Today was not one of those days.
