Shine On

I tend to live my life with a few philosophies in mind:

Don't say ya don't like it, if you never tried it.

Don't be scared to try new things

Live life like you might not be here tomorrow

Have No Regrets

Well - I think I covered all those bases last night. LOL

After dinner, myself and one of the other ladies I work with met up with some of the crew at their hotel. A few of the guys had bought some electric airplanes and were flying them in the hotel courtyard. It's amazing what people will do for entertainment when living on the road.

I learned that I'm not that great of an aviator. I crashed and burned so many times it's not funny. But actually it was - as it wasn't my plane!! LOL

A discussion arose about going to visit one of guys from another contracting company. It was his 57th bday yesterday....being that it wasn't super late - - 5 of us took off to go see Sam.

I should give ya a quick background about Sam. He's a tall skinny man, grew up in Alabama and now lives in his mobile home in the deep heart of Lousiana. He always seems to be in a good mood...but I personally wouldn't feel comfortable being alone in a room with him. But he's a good ol guy with a million stories....oh and he's been married 7 times.

So we go to his room - he's happy to see the bday well wishers at his door. Having been to dinner, I'm a bit more dressed up than the others - feeling a little out of my zone...but I'm a good ol girl and always seem to find my spot and always great for conversation.

We hadn't been sittin in there no more than 5 minutes...when Sam goes to this big wooden box. Opening it...he pulls out these big glass jugs. He starts talking (he's a low talker, so sometimes hard to hear what he's saying) about something to put the hair on the chest - or some other Moonshine saying. Oh yes - it was Moonshine.

Just taking off the caps of the bottles - the air filled with a smell I'm sure I will never forget. Everyone is laughing and he's telling everyone to "take a pull". A few of the guys held the jug on their arms and tipped it off their shoulders and into their mouths. I just watched in awe - - I've never seen moonshine, let alone taste it. After each one took their "pull"...they'd swoosh it around in their mouth, swallow..and then make some "whoop" sound.

And then the jug came to me.

Thinking on my philisophies.... I thought to myself "When the hell ya ever gonna get another chance to take a pull of shine?".... I knew that I would spill it all over if I tried to drink it like the others had. I smelled it first - - maybe that was a mistake...gawd, it smelled awful. I just knew they were about to make me drink gasoline or something.... but I took a deep breath - - took a big drink....swooshed in my mouth (everyone was laughing at the expressions on my face)...and then swallowed.

OMG - - WHY do people drink this stuff??? LOL - - - I didn't do any of the gagging, or whooping... I just kept fanning myself with my hand....that was the most god awful tasting stuff I ever had. I took that jug and passed it to the next person....uh, you can keep it.

Now 30 minutes later, I was still tasting it in my mouth. BLEH! The others had taken many more pulls....they were telling stories and forgetting what they were talking about in the middle of such story. That made it funny - - and I think I smoked 2 cigs trying to get the SHINE taste out of my mouth.

I figured it was time to go when Sam brought out his shotgun that he sleeps with nightly. Yes, it was that kind of - - I'm not sure how any of them got their happy ass up and to work this morning. Seems that stuff made them completely loopy after just a few drinks.

But I'm happy to see that they were all here this morning - all accounted for.

And now I can say "I've tried Moonshine once in my life...and did it with no regrets". I did check this morning while showering - - no new hairs...TG!

Having been born in Louisiana, and still having relatives there I was exposed to "shine" real early in life. All my male relatives got a real big hoot out of watching me take my first pull at age 12, and promptly hurling it right back out.
You have my admiration for being strong enough to tey it and keep it down. You're a better person than me.

At the age of 12????? OMG - - well I figure my years of experience with Jack and Tequilla probably helped my cause. But I wasn't crazy enough to go for 2. LOL

Sounds like fun HotTX I would have tried it myself. My Mom use to tell me stories about her Dad running shine back in the day. Have you ever tried Absinth?

I accidently swallowed gasoline once while siphoning from a car. Any resemblance?

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...
