I do have a few friends I've met through work, indeed I met my beautiful wife when she was hired at the pub I was working at but in all honesty they(actual friends) are few and far between.
This is probably because I'm not the most social of people*, I find it remarkably hard to get on with people, any of you that follow me on twitter or read this blog regularly will know I can be a bit
So what's the point? Not sure really, I started out wanting to make the point that I get bored at beery functions because I'm not very social but what you don't see are the four paragraphs that I've deleted off this particular post because they started getting a bit introspective and morose.
I suppose the only thing I'm really trying to say is that I get bored of only talking about beers, breweries, brewers and the like. People who don't get bored of talking about one topic the whole time must be mental. Of course I enjoy it sometimes but let's say, just for shits and giggles, next time you see me, ask me a question that's not about the beer I'm drinking or the name of the brewers pet budgie or whether or not the beer would taste better served from cask, keg, can, bottle or witches tit because at this moment, I really don't care.
This probably sounds quite churlish to you but isn't there more to people than beer?
