So I'm sure you read the headline and shook your head saying,"Oh no, not another political post talking about Obama being a terrorist or socialist." and "Get over it Obama won!". True, Obama won and I feel it is what it is. At this point in my life I've been around long enough to know that all politicians are like strippers. They promise you all these great things to get into the Champagne Room only to deceive you and take your money leaving you with the worst case of blue balls ever.
No, I'm not here to talk politics. I'm here to discuss one of my own personal decisions. It is going to be a tough one and I'm not sure if I really want to do it. Over the past 10+ years I have saved one bottle of every beer I've ever consumed. Basically, if it came in a bottle I drank it and then kept the bottle. Now I'm not talking every bottle just one of each. Still though. That shit adds up. And it looks like it has added up to about 600+ bottles and counting.
Now over the years that I have been keeping these bottles I have stored them in boxes. I have a spare room in the house and about 1/4-1/2 of the room is boxes of bottles. Then I have 6 pack holders of bottles just strewn all over the room. It has gotten to the point that I'm fed up with not being able to use the room. Hell, I could have a cool ass man room in there. All men need a man room right? So the question then is keep or throw away? Tough decision. Now I have been told by a buddy of mine, Ken the Barefootbrewer, that he peels the labels off and puts them in a scrape book. I've seen the scrapbook(s) and they are very cool. He keeps bottles that don't have labels or are pretty cool looking. I really like this idea but man it's tough to just throw away bottles I've been holding onto for so long. It would be nice to not have to 1) move all those damn boxes around every time we move 2) actually have people see them 3) they can be more organized in a book(s); and lastly 4)have another room in the house that maybe I can make into a man room.
So, all 9 readers, I put it to you. Keep or get rid of the bottles. Comment and let me know what you think.
