A tale of two beers

If there are any beer connoisseurs in Bloggy Land, you will appreciate my husband's latest and greatest...or at least you will appreciate my reaction. Our telephone conversation was as follows.

Hubby: Baby, how long has that beer been in the refrigerator?
Me: I just bought it, why?
Hubby: So, it was bad when you bought it?
Me: Noooooooooooo.
Hubby: Well, it must have gone bad in the fridge. I started pouring them out, but then I thought you might want to call the store.
Me: I just had one last night, what's wrong with them?
Hubby: Oh, they're spoiled.
Me: Spoiled?
Hubby: Yeah, really bitter and gross.
Me: It's an IPA, it's supposed to be bitter! Don't pour anything else out!!!
Hubby: It is supposed to taste like that?
Me: Yep, not to worry, I'll stop on my way home and pick up a twelve pack of Miller Lite in the can just for you.
Hubby: *said very sincerely* Thanks.


  1. LOL! I readily admit to being a beer snob, if not a beer connoisseur, and this just cracked me up! We leave the weak stuff in our fridge for friends of ours who are like your husband. Love it -- thanks. (said very sincerely.)

  2. I laughed out loud. Really. Not that LOL stuff.
