Thirsty Thursday


Hanging out today at For The Love Of Blogs. We're celebrating Thirsty Thursday. I've had a sinus headache all day, so I'm going to pass on drinks of the alcohol variety. Instead, I'm enjoying a tall, icy Pepsi!
Love the name of this particular Thursday post. It reminds me of days gone by. "Back in the day", I went to Ball State University (let's say mid 80's) and the second year of college, I lived off-campus with friends. I ended up becoming friends with the girls that lived downstairs because the girls I lived with were just a little too... shall we say... goody-goody? But they were nice girls and we got along well. That winter I hung out a lot with the girls downstairs.
The following summer, I moved downstairs and took summer classes. It was the best summer of my life. We had so much fun. When we weren't going to parties, we were having parties. And when we weren't doing that, we went down to The Chug for Thirsty Thursdays and quarter beers. I've never been much of a beer drinker, but as a poor college student, you can't argue the value...

Who am I kidding? Yuck!!!
But I wasn't really there for the beer. I was there because I knew Smitty would be there. His roommates were friends with my roommates and I was sooooo crushing on him. And we'd dance! He definitely falls into that category 0f "if I'd only known then what I know now". I let him slip through my hands. He didn't tell me until later (when it was much too late) that the feelings were mutual.

When I was home and couldn't go anywhere, this was my favorite show to watch. Mom loved it too.

Extra points for you if you can name the above artist!

P.S. If Lumpkin hears about quarter beers and me, I will deny it all. ;)
