Ice Day Redux: DISD Calls It Early

This just in from 3700 Ross, via the Facebook:
Because of icy road conditions that are not expected to improve overnight, Dallas ISD schools and administrative offices will be closed on Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011.
I have not yet told the 7-year-old who lives in my house, who, at this very moment, is doing some homework while listening to this. I mean, you have seen the latest forecast, right? I clearly did not buy enough bourbon for this week.

You should tell the boy right after he gets ready and is out at the bus stop. My dad did that, and my sister and I used to say, "Shut the fuck up and go back inside! This damn bus is coming any second!" Then, he'd assure us that school was totally, totally cancelled, and we'd run to the house, my mom would have made some warm pastry thing, and we'd have a few challenging rounds of Scrabble or a movie-a-thon. Good times!

You'd be welcome over here to share a bourbon, I have some new stories to email you soon...But I'm stuck in the burbs, probably why I stock up!

Too late. He came in the office while I was fixing dinner -- gumbo, corn bread -- and read Unfair Park. Then he came in the kitchen and did The Happy Dance.

Awful kind. But I do have two fresh bottles. And, really, that may not be enough.

Li'l 7 already listens to awesome music, eats gourmet, and comprehends Unfair Park.Frankly, my advice is worthless at this point. You got it down.

I go straight to the single malt.

The wife and I went through a couple bottles of wine, taking it easy in case I have to work tomorrow. Then I got word of Wednesday's closures. I tore into a half bottle of Bulleit Bourbon. Now moving on to my favorite, The Glenrothes, a Speyside single malt that stirs ancestral memories. I have enough to keep me until Thursday. Then I'm going to the blended stuff. My wife has a couple gallons of Grey Goose and we have plenty of ice (pun intended). If we remember Icepocalypse 2011, it will be a shame.

ha, living in the 'burbs' I've just started to buy it a case at a time (the big bottles).

I tapped into that Buffalo Trace Mash today too, but still have plenty to share; stuff is stout.

I'm ripping the seal of my Knob Creek in your honor--BOOM!! Right back atcha!-- Alas, the BF is in Mesquito, so, feh. This may be a solo sipping evening. Is that bad?

I think one bottle will be enough. I don't have your strong (congealed?) liver, Big Bob.

'Tis indeed. Still, the bottles are too small. Mine's about empty. And it wasn't earlier today. It's still today, right?
