A Secret Language

I pick my daughter up from pre-school almost every Friday afternoon. On the way home - in addition to other errands her mother assigns me - we go to the Beer Store. She and I have developed a secret language to communicate my choices for the weekend.

Cinderella Beer - St. Pauli Girl

Sleeping Beauty Beer - Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest

Scarry Ghost Picture Beer - Hacker-Pschorr Weisse

Key Beer - Beck's

Red Star Beer - Heineken

Fat Daddy Beer - Amstel Light

Blue Star Ocean City Beer - Newcastle Brown Ale

Kangaroo Beer - Foster's

Sun Beer - Sol

Green X Beer - Dos Equis Lager

Red X Beer - Dos Equis Amber

Wizard of Oz Beer - Magic Hat Blind Faith

Angel Beer - Magic Hat Fat Angel

Number Nine Beer - MH #9

Pretty Pink Eye Beer - MH Heart of Darkness

Bug Beer - MH Hocus Pocus

Shark Beer - any Dogfish Head variety

White Shark Beer - specifically Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA

Airplane Beer - Flying Fish

Bat Dog Beer - Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale

Dinosaur Beer - Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA

Skeleton Man Beer - Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter

We also discuss whether to get a "small box" (6-pack), a "big box" (12-pack) or a "really big box" (case)

So, for example this past Friday I got "a Big Box of Red X Beer and a Big box of Sun Beer plus a bottle of Pirate Beer (Captain Morgan)"
