Cease Fire and Drink a Beer

I came across this Dear Abby post and felt the need to make a few edits…


Much better!  Such a simple and effective concept…like the “go in another room, shut the door and count to 10” trick when the kiddies drive you to the extreme.  A malty hoppy beverage that acts as a mild sedative is just the ticket – versus a sugary caffeinated candy bar that lasts maybe 30 seconds, isn’t nearly as satisfying, has just as many calories and will have you both climbing the walls and clawing each other (not in a good way) from the sugar high.

Imagine this…heated discussion begins to brew.  You both look at each other…hold the phone, grab two glasses, crack open a quality craft brewsky, split between glasses (make sure it’s even or that might start a whole different discussion), clink glasses, take a big swig, savor it, and what happens next?   Ok, we’ll keep it G-rated, but you get my point.  Let the clawing begin!
Cheers beers!

    My wife and I actually don’t fight, but I might be interested in picking some fights with this formula for working out disagreements. 😉

      Excellent! Let the clawing begin!

    This is brilliant! Although I have never gone to marriage counseling, I can’t see how it can be any better than this bit of advice (your method is much less expensive too!). And for those non beer drinkers out there, a glass of wine, some whisky, or a well crafted cocktail will work too. When done properly, nothing brings people together better than a fine adult beverage.

      Well said G-LO. Arguing is always more fun when under the influence of a fine beverage.

    Yes – I agree with G-LO: brilliant!

      Great quote! Homer is much wiser than people give him credit for 🙂

    You are a master editor!

      Thank you! A few simple tweaks can make all the difference.
