When To Say "When"
One thing that you see in London that you'd NEVER see in the States is all these people drinking GLASSES of beer out on the sidewalks (outside the pubs).
You'd never see it because our liability lawyers would require plastic, unbreakable cups.
In the UK glass is okay because the drinks cost so much and the people are so poor....that they wouldn't dare drop a beer!
I see glasses out on the street once in a while.
I know I myself use to walk out of bars in Philly with half-drunk beers under my coat, concealed under my shirt, stuck in my trousers on my lower back, etc.
I saw this particular glass near a pub the other day and figured my blog readers would LOVE To see it.
Obviously the dude (broad?) didn't want to stop drinking even though it was clearly time.
What a polite bloke, though...confining the chunks to his glass!
I remember once I was at a bar on 38th and Chestnut in Philly....
I accidentally knocked over a plastic cup at a crowded bar and smelled something very foul.
My buddy told me that he had puked in that cup!
He was one of those rare, messed-up dudes who could puke....and yet still be able to continue drinking.
When I puked, I was done for the night - and probably for the next night.
And whatever it was that I drank, if it was a little exotic....I might not ever drink it again.
I drank a lot back in the day, back in my deformative years in Philly.
My puke incidents were probably less that 8 in my entire drinking career.
