Extra Case: An Update

A little more than a year ago I did a post about a guy who lives in my neighborhood who drinks 2 cases of beer a week... every week. I ran the numbers and found that he consumes 576 ounces of Miller Lite each and every week for a total of more than 30,000 a year. Well, as the last 12 months wore on, he never let us down. Each and every Sunday afternoon there they were, two empty cases and the recycling bin filled with the fallen soldiers. I have remained torn between being impressed by his consistency while also being a bit worried for him. I mean, that's a lot of beer.

The consistency is gone, however. Today I walked outside and saw three cases of beer piled at the end of the driveway. As you can see in the picture the bottles were also overflowing the top of the bin. All of this adds up to either a onetime blip due to New Years Eve, or an escalation of his drinking problem. Hell, maybe his New Year's resolution was to drink more, so he can do his part to stimulate the economy.

...sweet land of liberty!

Maybe he has a lady friend that can drink half of what he drinks.

Sadly no. The truck you see here is the only auto that is ever in the driveway.
