Are you honest? Just got asked, and dodged with, "enough for now". :))

    "Just a couple", she then realized it meant a couple of six packs.

    I usually respond with "Uh, hello pot..."

    Great thread...the good news is "trained to not ask" as I have really twisted it up only once (under the scrutiny) and immediately "begged forgiveness" as I knew I was on the down-side of any salvation.  
    That written-I can salvage any extended range cook with a pace that will afford many beers and even a few bourbons and even for a full lap of the clock.  Pays to be old...and ....

    She quit asking. As long as I don't slur or stumble. Ok, she ask every other night.

    We'll see how mine is in Salado. Don't think I can drink enough PBR to affect me though.

    The last time I was asked I ended up getting sprayed with a hose while I danced like Chris Farley in Tommy Boy. I sang the song too. She's been afraid to ask since then.

    If she asks, I'm honest.



    But she usually goes to bed before I do. :D

    It usually goes like this:

    "Travis, you are drunk"
    "I don't feel drunk"
    Well.... You sound drunk"
    "That's funny, I really don't feel drunk"

    She them goes to bed and leaves me to it.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I don't remember her ever asking.

    I've always been 100% honest with my girlfriends to that question.
     
     
     
    Which is why I've never had a SWMBO.

    She only asks for two reasons:
    1) I am designated driver
    2) We have a limited amount of beer left, and she wants to make sure I leave enough for her.

    After 43 years, she doesn't ask. She simply appeals to my Scott heritage with "You might as well pour that down the drain, because you will never feel it". She is right, no sense wasting good booze on a glow that can't get better.

    My answer used to be.."i came home didn't I?"

    She is not asking me anymore but after a health issue I had I don't drink more than 2 beers a week.

    pick up my empties and count em yourself
    :D
  • I hardly ever go out to the bar so when I drink I am at home 99.9% of the time so she never gives me a hard time. Unless she's trying to drag me from the couch to the bedroom, happens more than I like to admit haha.

    This is my first glass.  I lost count of how many times I refilled it, but I only used the one glass.

    I usually say something stupid before she gets to ask, so she leaves me alone to watch golf or fall asleep on the couch.
