How many times do you plan to have a drink?

As in “Let’s meet for a drink?”

Doesn’t it sound sophisticated?

“Let’s get a drink.”

It’s not a party or a brew pub, but it is a Hard-A hustle.

If you agree to meet for a drink, think of it like church.

Put on your nice clothes and get your mind right.

There’s going to be a pitch.

1.Oscar Wilde pitches sidearm.

“Work is the curse of the drinking classes.”

2. Nero pitches heat.

“What an artist dies in me!”

3. Mark Twain pitches a change-up.

“Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself,   and never refuse to take a drink– under any circumstances.”

4. JFK pitches a curve.

“Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”

7. Benjamin Franklin pitches a knuckle-ball.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

8. Ernest Hemingway throws a screwball.

“Drinking is a way of ending the day.”

10. Winston Churchill pitches from behind.

Bessie Braddock: “Sir, you are drunk.”
Churchill: “Madam, you are ugly. In the morning, I shall be sober.”

11. Eleanor Roosevelt brings it all.

“It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”

Is there a Baby Boomer around who wouldn’t want to meet them all?
