|I have tried beer many times, and just can't seem to enjoy it. I eat and drink plenty, so I also feel that if I am going to consume calories, I should probably get some enjoyment out of it. Not that I have anything negative to say about my comrades who consume massive quantities of fermented beverages (I will indulge in a bit of JD myself on rare occasions). So, my friends have assigned me the duty of designated driver or navigator. Although I have never had to perform this duty for them, I stand at the ready, should one (or many) of them ever be in need of such services. For now, I continue to join them at their beer-rating happy hours and engage them in stimulating conversations that tend to become more and more interesting as the night progresses.
