It's the Little Things
Posted by Sam at 11:14 PM
I make it standard practice to set my daily goals low. Really low. So low in fact, that sometimes I'm able to achieve them simply by waking up. "Sam, your goal today is to get out of bed before 2 p.m." See? Easily attainable and I get to start the day with a satisfying feeling of accomplishment. And everything else that gets done is just icing on the cake. Icing. On. The cake.
Today's goal was a bit trickier than it has been in recent days. I woke up in my usual pool of sweat (who new that moving the 70 miles south from Massachusetts to Connecticut would put me in the heart of the deep south? Damn, it's hot in this back-ass-ward state. I miss the commonwealth...), and I said unto myself, "Sam, today's goal is one of immense importance. You, my friend, need to drink a beer in the shower. But wait... a quest of this gravity requires something special. Not just any beer will do. Nay, it is the 'Champagne of Beers' of which you seek. The High Life. Now go! Time is short and the sun is beating hard upon my... well, I'm still in bed. But if I where to go outside, surely the sun would beat hard upon something of mine." And thus a quest was born.
Er... I guess that's it really. I went to the fridge, picked out the shiniest can of Miller High Life... or more accurately, the can that was in the front, and hopped in the shower. Ahhh... one of life's greatest pleasures.
As an afterthought, I'm really glad that I purchased that new high tech digital camera. I mean, how else would I have been able to share important snippets of my life like this, with the vastness of the blogosphere?
Money well spent.

my first beer in the shower was freshman year of college...it started off as a way to save time getting ready each night. Now I just enjoy it so much to not do it! you will be hooked- I promise you that!
