I was in line at the grocery store this morning and there was a hot 40-something guy ahead of me buying "Alimony Ale". I couldn't come up with an opening line, so I blew the perfect opportunity. Gah!

Maybe if I wasn't wearing yoga pants with my hair in a pony tail I would have been more inspired.

yeah. Us guys expect the wimmenz in the grocery to be there in an evening gown with perfect hair.

Go for it next time!

You should have put your Rat Bastard bottle of wine on the counter and nodded at him.

Kajem posted 6/16/2013 10:40 AM

So what would you have said?

Perfect, Kajem!!!

I would love to tell you that you should have gone for it, but that would make me a total hypocrite. As soon as I can start making eye contact with a single man for more than 1/26th of a second, then maybe I can start doling out relationship advice.

I love the name of that ale! I should have gotten some for the g2g.

t/j

I thought it was "Fat Bastard"...or am I having a blond moment?

I do tend to buy wine because I like the name

end of t/j

I try very hard to just speak to men in all situations. Practicing not shutting down instantly because I was used to being in "married mode" for so long. It is hard to do!

It is Fat Bastard.

That name doesn't make me think of wine, though. It makes me think of Mike Myers's disgusting Scottish character from Austin Powers.

Perhaps someone on SI could start a Rat Bastard Winery?

Sorry kids, it's a root beer:

But you could get some of this:

Great ideas! I will have to hide the grocery list from the kids next week.

They do make "Arrogant Bastard". I think it's an IPA, but I could be wrong.

heartbroken_kk posted 6/17/2013 10:36 AM

Mmmmmm Arrogant Bastard! My favorite. I gotta get me some of this Alimony Ale, I wonder if it's a bitter beer oy a yummy malty one?

FaithFool posted 6/17/2013 10:40 AM

Arrogant Bastard is yummy!

Spot on, just substitute "speak to women". I am however, finding it easier, and easier.

I'm good at making remarks to people I don't know. I think i would have asked if he was buying it to celebrate or drown his sorrows. But, then, I more than likely wouldn't even have noticed what he had. BUT, if I had........

Me too, trying. Me too.

Haha. As of to prove my point, the guy who came in and sat almost at my table at the place I am having a late lunch and reading on here turned around and jumped when he saw me here. He was on his phone when he came in and sat there. I was just hitting send when he said he didn't realize anyone else was around as he spoke loudly on his phone. ( I was reading and paid no attention to his convo)

I said it's ok. I've only been here a half hour. Then he asked if I thought it is as warm in here as he thought. I told him it's more likely warm from being embarrassed! He apologized profusely and left with a warning not to text and drive.
