Things I don’t need to buy.

.

In Facebook’s ongoing quest to entice me to buy something, I give you this week’s selections.

I’ve been known to have a random cocktail from time to time. On special occasions. Like Tuesdays. But what I won’t be having again is Absinthe. It’s never been my liquor of choice but a few years ago on a bar crawl vacation in Vermont, we stumbled into a prohibition style den of iniquity pub. Do I remember the name of the establishment or the town in which it resided? No. Because after the devil bartender served me 3 pretty green but oh so deadly Absinthe concoctions I was lucky to remember my own name. Nice try Facebook, but I’ll pass.

Remember how a few of the past product recommendations reminded me of things found in a sado-masochist’s closet… even though they weren’t?

Well, this week it’s a little harder to find the innocent reason for your purchase. Try mountain climbing in this…

And finally there’s something really ridiculous that proves Facebook isn’t paying close enough attention. We have a man cave… with a full bar.

A bounce house Irish pub would just be a squirrel attracting redundancy.

    1. The puffy pub does not require a license as it’s not considered a permanent structure… due to the possibility of it blowing down the road with a strong wind gust. 😉
      As for absinthe, it was believed to be dangerously hallucinogenic. I can’t speak to that… but it sure was potent.

  1. I don’t know how well behaved your party guests are, but a bouncy pub drunk people overflow area could save them some bumps and bruises, as well as saving you a shopping trip to replace broken “timeless treasures”. Sayin’.

  2. * Absinthe did get a bad rep as a hallucinogen, but in truth it is just another liquor. Its other name was Wormwood, and fed into the religious fervor of the Pentecostal movement in that day.
    I like real licorice (forbidden to me), but the flavor is not a favorite of mine in cocktails.
    * The harness? I would buy one for a friend. *cough!* *cough!*
    * Irish bounce house? Uh, no. Rusty be too cool for that …

    1. That’s right, Wormwood! Although it doesn’t sound very tasty when you think about calling it by that name.
      The harness for a friend? Of course. Now go take care of that cold….
      😈

  3. I tried and still have almost a full bottle of absinthe. I didn’t drink more than one and that was enough. So why do sadomasochists always have “equipment” tailored to women? I say let me design an apparatus made out of leather that hog ties a man with a long stick on which to dangle the television remote control. Now THAT is torture 😝. An adult bouncy house? I think I’ll pass.
