My Dubai summer sabbatical without beer….

Posted on June 29th, 2009 by Jim

Summertime in Dubai and 40 degrees C is the norm. I’m taking a sabbatical from anything alcoholic for a couple of months and haven’t had any cravings as yet:

britain-has-talent

I find I sleep better on a booze free body and as cask ale isn’t readily available here there is far less temptation.

I do miss THINGS THAT  ARE DIFFICULT TO SAY WHEN  DRUNK:
1. Innovative
2. Preliminary
3.  Proliferation
4. Cinnamon

THINGS THAT  ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO SAY WHEN  DRUNK:
1. Specificity
2.  Anti-constitutionalistically
3. Passive-aggressive  disorder
4. Transubstantiate

THINGS THAT  ARE DOWNRIGHT IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY  WHEN DRUNK:
1. No thanks, I’m engaged.
2. Nope, no more booze for me!
3.  Sorry, but you’re not really my  type.
4.  No thanks, I’m not hungry.
5.  Good evening, officer. Isn’t it lovely out  tonight?
6. Oh, I couldn’t!  No one wants to  hear me sing karaoke.
7. I’m not interested in  fighting you.
8. Thank you, but I won’t make any  attempt to dance, I have no coordination.  I’d hate  to look like a fool!
9. Where is the nearest  bathroom?  I refuse to pee in this parking lot or  on the side of the road.
10. I must be going home  now, as I have to work in the  morning

The joy of booze – feel free to share your ‘fors and against’ of alcohol’ and difficult to say words in comments. Share them here as the garden needs watering and please comment moderately!

    Quite agree J, Specificity, I can hardly say it stone cold sobre. I should take a leaf but I seem to be rewarding myself with copious amount of the stuff. Had a few mojitos yesterday in the Handbridge sun.

    Hi Jim!
    Very interesting post you made!
    I’d like add to the part THINGS THAT ARE DOWNRIGHT IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY WHEN DRUNK: “I’m drunk”, “I will drive you to your home”
    In case your sabbatical is over, Belgium Beer Cafe in Festival City is a good place be outdoors at night without feeling it’s 40 degrees C as it’s near to a creek!
    Cheers,
    Trang

    Yikes, judging from the photo of you there Jim, its definitely time to reduce the alcohol intake.

    I’ve massively reduced my alcoholic intake.

    In my head anyway. That will do.
