Nips Yankee Swap

So, we haven’t written anything in about four weeks. Whoops. Let’s chalk that up to the Thanksgiving Tryptophan. We slept for a solid month. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.

Anyway, we recently partook in a holiday drinking celebration that warrants documentation, the Nips Yankee Swap. Now, this event featured neither food nor beer, but because we were all drinking beers on the side, it counts. Don’t you love loopholes? Don’t answer that.

If you don’t know what a Yankee Swap is, first, remove your head from your rear end, clean it off, and return to your computer screen. Back yet? Okay, I’ll explain the rules. Everybody brings wrapped gift(s) to a party. An order for picking is determined, and the first person chooses a gift and unwraps it. The next person can then choose to either unwrap a new gift, or steal the gift that the first person unwraps. This unfolds for the rest of the participants, working in rounds if multiple gifts are involved. Hilarity ensues.

So the Nips Yankee Swap was this idea with a Charles Barkley alcoholic twist to it. Each person bought 3 different nips from their local liquor store. All the nips were put into a big bag, and rounds unfolded with people blindly pulling bottles out of the bag. After each round, contestants drank what they were left with. I ended up with Southern Comfort, 99 Apples and Frangelico. Random, I know. But so is Christmas.

Everybody, have a merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year’s, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Ramadan, enjoy stewing angrily in Atheist Anti-Christmas, or whatever it is you do. Just eat a lot of food, drink a lot of beer, and do it safely. My new year’s Resolution is to write on the blog more. Crap, now it won’t come true.
