I think for the most part we’ve all accepted the fact that winter is coming.
In a last display of defiance, my air conditioner remains in my window, but with each passing night the chill creeping through the gaps in the windowsill becomes harder and harder to ignore. It’s getting cold and grey out there. Hell, its already snowed. So with winter right around the corner, I thought I, your friendly neighborhood bartender. would share three solid tips on how to get through the next four miserable months.
1. Human Interaction. There is just something comforting about putting your freezing toes against someone else’s as you fall asleep in a tangled heap. Sharing body heat is the easiest way to stay warm in the winter. Although you may want to proceed with caution if trying this at the bar. Awkward.
2. Don’t be afraid of the few extra pounds. Eating warms the body and the mind, and unless you’re a superhero chances are you’ll gain a little added winter weight. This is scientifically for survival. Embrace the muffin top. Wings are a start.
3. Whiskey fixes everything. It answers questions like “Got a sore throat?” “Are you cold?” “Bored at home or at work?” The answer to all of those questions, and so many, many more, is whiskey. So have some whiskey.
Call it the bartender’s cure-all to seasonal affective disorder.
