About a month ago MikeRoberto.com’s oft-quoted friend, Dan, introduced me to a term that his friend had coined: Sailor’s Choice.
Sailor’s Choice is a saying that encapsulates the state of having the perfect buzz while drinking alcohol. This condition is ideally suited towards having insightful, witty conversation while losing most, if not all social anxieties. Although erroneously named, it has quite a charming ring to it that I’ve decided to adopt.
Sailor’s Choice has one major problem, however: it feels so good to have, one continues to drink more to extend this sensational feeling. Soon after this point, drunkenness ensues, which leads to more worthless, shameless, and wreckless behavior. I’ll be the first to admit that there is a time and place for such inappropriateness, but when attempting to casually and socially drink, straddling the line of Sailor’s Choice is much more preferable.
If you drink, please join me in the challenge for the perfect buzz – and with it, the perfect, memorable conversation!

I commend your efforts to make March the month of Sailor’s Choice drinking, but you have neglected one very significant point in your selection. March also happens to have one day that should be dedicated to an drinking in excess. Need I remind you that St. Patrick’s Day is only days away and the very essence of this unofficial holiday is wearing green, consuming Irish beverages (and non-Irish as well) and of course shenanigans!
Because of this I would recommend that March be the month of Sailor’s Choice with the exception of March 17th and maybe the 18th also, because let’s face it we’ll probably still be drunk that day also.

5-6 beers? Damn! 5-6 beers for me and I am scoping out the rafter situation!
Lets plan to figure out my sailor’s choice threshold.

The Sailor’s Choice interval between blog posts is 3 days FYI.
