Day 5 (or was yesterday Day 4?) was a fantastic success. It took nearly 3 1/2 hours, but the desk is complete and it’s glorious.
I can just picture myself sitting there writing my collections of short stories into a book about growing up in the Midwest – stories that everyone can relate to and someone will option for a movie. All because of the desk. When I accept my Oscar, or whatever award they give authors before that, I will thank my agent, my family, and my Ikea desk.
Also, a gift I didn’t even know I wanted – Barsmith’s Old Fashioned mix. I typically drink Manhattans (as the four or five readers of this Blog already know), but I like the idea of an Old Fashioned. Enter Barsmith’s Old Fashioned mix.
Maybe longtime drinkers of Old Fashions will scoff at this, but last night, while having friends over, I found my new favorite drink, and it goes like this…
- 1 oz. Barsmith Old Fashioned mix
- 2 oz. TC Whisky’s American Cherry Edition Bourbon (this is my favorite bourbon …period …the cherry flavor is only a hint, but just enough).
- Splash of bitters
- Orange wedge
- Lots of ice
It would not surprise me a bit if next year about this time I’m Blogging about a drinking problem. OK. That’s a bad joke. It won’t be a “problem”.
If you’re keeping score, I’ve gotten a black iPhone chord, Tigers t-shirt, loud socks, two deck chairs, a new desk, Barsmith Old Fashioned mix, and entry into Dollar Shave Club.
I hope you’re having an equally amazing I Love Don Week.
