Aiming Fluid..........

BAR readers may recall my mention of the appropriate serum level of aiming fluid to improve any game involving throwing a projectile at any standing target.

In particular, said aiming fluid is used for darts and now bowling for yours truly.

Typically the aiming fluid that works best for me consists of beer and maybe a shot of Tuaca every now and then.  My prime level of aiming fluid tends to be right around 3 or 4 beers.

That level works great for darts, however, I've found that in bowling, Tuaca just doesn't cut it.  I've found over the last couple of weeks that a shot of Cuervo 1800 does wonders for my game.

The beauty of it is, that with tequila, i require less beer and i feel quite happy.

Fortunately, I've already been through my day after way too much tequila hangover days, so I have no problem stopping at the 3 shot mark and then chasing it with water, rather than beer.

Life is good....

Now...   years ago, I used to drink tequila shots with beer chasers and spent many a morning after, at the alter of the porcelain god paying homage with offerings of whatever was left in my stomache and then some.

For the longest time, the smell of tequila would immediately cause my stomach to say... "oh HELL no!" and begin convulsing and if I took a swallow of the stuff straight.....   a trip to the bathroom would soon commence and back up it would fly.

Now...  there is a trick to avoiding this embarrassment on the rare occasion that someone would twist my arm and get me to take a shot with them......  sugar.

Yes, that's right... sugar....    Mary Poppins wasn't lying when she said, "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." 

Any time you take a shot and if you feel like it's going to make you sick...  eat a little sugar and it will keep your stomach happy.

All of that said.....    I no longer need that sugar, the shots are staying down just fine, thank you... 


Alot can be said for being older and a little wiser....    no hangover for me today!   yay!


  1. This would be the porcelain god 'Ralph'...


  2. When my wife and I bowled on a league a couple years ago, I found my game started out strong, but after the first game I began to throw a bit wild, then wear down a little.
    A Four Horsemen (Jim, Jack, Jose, Dickel) right before the second game seemed to put me right where I needed to be.
    Well, if ONE worked that first game, then TWO should work the following game, right?
    They really polish the hell out of that floor, you know? That sumbitch came up and hit me in the face when I wasn't even looking.
