My high schooler had miderms this week. Ergo, I had midterms this week. Dante really ought to update his Inferno to include Studying with Teenager as a 10th Circle of Hell. This week, I studied Earth Science, Algebra, Ancient World History and PE. Yes, PE has a midterm. I know all about igneous and sedimentary rocks, the difference between a red giant star and a supernova, and I can diagram a total lunar eclipse. I can graph a line in slope-intercept form. OK, I can sort of graph a line in slope-intercept form. But I know all about the ancient Indus Valley Civilization of the Harappan, and I can name the first 8 Dynasties of Ancient China. And quite possibly the most important knowledge nugget of the week . . . I now know the difference between Dodgeball and Commando Dodgeball. Commando Dodgeball does not mean naked dodgeball. Despite my relief, I lost interest after that.
And now . . . I want a beer!
Enter the Long Strange Tripel from Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City, Kansas. I love beer in the 750ml format. I especially love the Champagne-cork closure. Nothing says celebrate like the sound of a popping cork! This is a brilliant gold color in the glass. Light and refreshing. Honey, banana and orange notes . . . it kinda reminds me of a Blue Moon. Tasty . . . and gone!
Aaaahhh . . . Spring Break!
