"Smokin' Cigarettes And Watchin' Captain Kangaroo..."

I'll be honest with you, I have no idea what this post will be about. I just happened to be listening to the Statler Brothers' "Flowers On the Wall" when I popped open the post window, and voila!, a blog post title.

  I sometimes wonder how close I am to becoming someone who just wanders around the house in his bathrobe. clutching a Burger King Star Wars glass full of gin and complaining about the designated hitter and flat front chinos.

  I mean, I think I'm fairly safe thanks to the three lovely ladies with whom I share my life( I mean my wife and two daughters, not some Three's Company Plus One scenario), but I do wonder what it would take to knock loose my grasp of what it takes to be a functioning member of society. I sometimes think it would take less than I would care to admit.

  Though to be fair, I don't know that I would be drinking gin. And it for sure wouldn't be straight gin. Not at first, anyway. I'm really more of a mixed drink type of guy. I'd be kinda like this guy, I suspect:

That's that song that Butch was singin' in the car in Pulp Fiction, right?

By the way, that's one of my favorite KITH skits. My buddy Slyde is a girl drink drunk. Or he could be...if he drank a little more.

Earl- Yup. I remember it from when I was a kid. My Mom loves country music, and was always listening to it in the car.
The KITH were(are) brilliant.My drinks are not quite this elaborate, but I'm definitely a "booze + something" guy.

I think wandering around the house drinking a fruity drink out of a BK cup and complaining about newfangled inventions sounds awesome! I think you've hit upon an excellent retirement plan. Thanks for the idea!
