Instead of making bull shit resolutions that, we all know, I are not going to keep; on some of my blogs I am going to include things that bug the hell out of me - and that I would like to see change in 2012. I am going to call it:
A BUZZARD EGG OMELET
Sunday morning I went into the local Hannaford grocery store to pick up some salad makings and a bottle of wine. I got to the checkout and the young cashier told me I couldn’t buy wine before twelve-o-clock (noon.)
“Why not?” I asked.
“Because it’s the law,” she replied.
Now, it didn’t take me but a moment to reason that Christian church services run until noon on Sundays. If the law stated that all Christians could not buy wine until after noon on Sundays – I would have no problem with that. But, I am not a Christian, so why the hell shouldn’t I be able to purchase wine on Sunday morning? Hell, the Catholics and Episcopalians are drinking wine in church on Sunday mornings – but I am not allowed the same freedom to access a good bottle of red.
