Bartles & Jaymes Wild Berry

One sip, and then...

Mountain's Mississippi Queen, The Rock Aqua Jays, my old LeSabre, Club 708, the faint smell of pot, Rumpleminz peppermint schnaaps, a calendar of Calvin Klien Award winners, Tom's Triumph Bonneville chopper, playing basketball while drunk and talking to my pastor, Jane's ass, stale cigarette smoke, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Blarney Stone and the pickles splattered all along the back wall, Peavey amps, real Metallica, Emo Phillips, drinking contests... during lunch hour, Candy's ass, Reign in Blood, Geri's burgers, Mr. Bumblebee ...

I haven't drank a wine cooler in about twenty one years, though I used to drink many. In getting rid of one that sat in my aunt's fridge (for Gott knows how long), I was hit with a flood of memories.

I savored that cooler.

Twice in my life I made the mistake of drinking B&J Wild Berry wine coolers while eating Ranch flavored Doritos. That is a weird chemical reaction. I swear if you put those two in a beaker, it would explode. Thought I was gonna die.

I drank a lot of B&J before I took a liking to beer. It was affordable and portable.

I bet the memory that flooded over you was about how much better beer was!

I'll drink them, but only when I've run out of beer. Then I'll steal one of my wife's coolers.

I take that same walk with Jimmy Beam. Well, except it's my old Ventura, and the asses belong to a different gender, but yeah - I know what you're talkin' about.....

Hmmmm... Maybe I should have a cooler. Happy flashbacks would be nice!

Wine cooler?

Can't drink those things. They give me a wicked hangover.

I'll stick with beer and/or scotch, thanks.

But they had the commercials, didn't they?

The commercials kicked ass. Hell, I didn't even know you could still get that nasty stuff. My wife loved them.
