It might be that today is payday Friday that I feel compelled to mention how much I love the selection at the Crown Wine & Spirits closest to my apartment.
I'm honestly like a little kid at that M&M store in Times Square (above, a google street view pic BTW) whenever I'm in that store.
I merely stopped in for a new tin of Arturo Fuente Cubanitos and ended up spending $60 on beer, more beer, and what I think may be the Holy Grail of $5 wines. I got to taste it at the counter and it's damn good, for $5 mind you. I might pay $12-$15 for it if I didn't know how much it cost.
In the immortal words of Napoleon Dynamite, "yessssssssss."
I'm such a sucker for impulse items.
At this moment, there are three other things I'm really loving and appreciating (in bold italics below):
Having a really attractive girl check me out and smile at me, as she's pulls up next to my car at the light. Both of our windows are down, I'm smoking a stogie listening to Sinatra's Summerwind, and she's smoking a cig (can do without that, but you can't have everything right...I mean, where would you put it all).
I play it coy for a few moments and pretend I don't notice. I look over again, and she's still staring.
"Nice" I think to myself, as I put on my best bedroom eyes look and smile back.
Being a single man, I have an especially weak-willed disposition when it comes to attractive women that dig me. I can't help it. It's in my genes.
Have I mentioned that one of the surnames in my ancestry happens to be Casanova? Well, there you go. See, it's not my fault!
Plus, I am kind of a big deal and all.
Somehow, I don't think any of those reasons convinced anyone, but hey, I gave it a shot.
Anyway, I get home and pull up my iTunes, hit the iTunes DJ option, and on comes Dave Matthews Band's song Say Goodbye.
I just love it...
So I'm kicking back drinking a really great German beer, Warsteiner, and relaxing to one of my favorite DMB songs.
Payday Fridays are the two best days of every month, I tell ya (Thanksgiving and Christmas being the exception).
I think I'll light up another stogie now.
To anyone who stops by to read my drivel, have a fantastic weekend!
