Picking up a six-pack of beer

Guest Ed Guest

After work tonight, I thought I'd swing by the corner liquor store and pick up a six-pack of cold ones-- it's been a long hard week at work, and I thought I'd kick back and relax tonight. The liquor store is in a very nice section of town, and it's not your average, crummy, porn-mags-behind-the-counter kind of liquor store. It's really pretty up-scale-- they have wine-tasting parties on Saturday evenings there.

So I'm in my car, getting ready to turn off the main street into the store parking lot, when I notice three police officers standing close together, near the corner of the building. They're sort of peering around the corner. Standing real close to the wall. 😕

I immediately noticed two things about these police officers, in the following order: they're all women (shows you what kind of guy I am 😂 ), and they all have their guns drawn! 😳

So I ask myself, "Do I REALLY want to position my body between these three gun-totin' (but kinda' cute 😉 ) officers of the law and whatever they're checking out?"

The answer was a resounding "NO!" so I kept on driving and got my brew at the grocery store down the street. WAY down the street.

I hope everybody's okay, but it kind of rattled me to see those people preparing for combat right in the middle of town. I didn't really think they were looking into the liquor store, because they were standing in front of that store's big glass window, but looking around the corner toward the next store; I really think they were checking out the pizza place next door.

Some days I think my job is tough, and kind of a headache, but at least nobody's shooting at me, fer cryin' out loud!

Hi Ed,

Your story is not even remotely related to aviation but quite a nice one. 😉

Well... I have a nice story as well (read and weep): 😂

On the first day God created the dog. God said: "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said: "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give you back the other ten." So God agreed.

On the second day God created the monkey. God said: "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said: "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?" And God agreed.

On the third day God created the cow. God said: "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said: "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty." And God agreed again.

On the forth day God created man. God said: "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years." Man said: "What? Only twenty years! Tell you what; I'll take my twenty, plus the forty the cow gave back and the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God: "you've got a deal!"

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you.

ED,
Great story, I would run like a bandit also. I'm a gun nut but not at night on the street.

Compilot, funny stuff, thanks for the early morning laugh.

Well, I left off the ending, where I went down the street and borrowed a helicopter, flew back to the scene of the action, captured the bad guys, and then flew the three female deputies to the beach for a party. . .

And if I'm lying, may lightning strike me. . . OUCH!!! 😳 😳

Uh, never mind. . . 😉

Very, very very true! A well explained statement, short and simple, just how I like it. 😉

Thanks for tracking down that statement! 👍
