Drinking Buddy of the Year: Celeste It wouldn’t be a good time without this one. She is present at almost any work party I threw. We drink after work. We drink at her house.

Still no hot water, kids.

Here I was, in my short sleeved shirt with the windows rolled down, driving down the sunny street where today’s forecast looks

The day after Brandon’s office party, where I showed up wearing the elf hat and chugging the big ol’ mug of Guinness, one of his colleagues from another department came up to him. “Was you wife drunk at the party?” “What? No! Why? Because that giant mug of Guinness?” “Well, we figured she’s got to be drunk wearing that elf hat and all of that.” “Nah. That’s just how she is, man.” “Oh.” Brandon’s sergeant chimed in at this point
