Let’s talk about relationships today. I consider myself an expert, since I’ve been married three times (four if you count remarrying my first wife). The first things I learned were don’t marry in haste and don’t marry too young. I was nineteen years old when I got married. That’s way too young, but at least I got two beautiful daughters out of that relationship (talk about feeling old; my oldest daughter is 50). Then I learned not to marry on the rebound. That’s a sure recipe for disaster. Right now I am married to an absolutely fantastic woman. I’ve known her for almost twenty years, having worked together in our local hospital, and we’ve been married for six years. She’s intelligent, witty, and has an amazing sense of humor. To quote Jack Nicholson from the movie As Good As It Gets, “she makes me want to be a better man.” It has taken me many, many years to realize the simple fact that you should really know and respect the person you’re with. I know now, what I didn’t know when I was younger, that I have found that perfect (for me) person. Speaking of relationships, how is your relationship with your beer. Are the two of you getting along? Maybe today is the time to TRY a new beer and to TELL us about it. How does it look? How does it smell? How does it taste? How does it feel in your mouth? What is your overall impression? Are you fulfilled or do you need to diversify your tastes?
