At the beginning of every summer, somebody always says, “This is going to be the best summer ever!” As much as I’ve always admired this early-June spurt of optimism, I’ve been pretty convinced that my best summer ever came and went a long time ago. Perhaps I was wrong.
A few members of the Woody’s staff got to participate in a Budweiser beer training program this afternoon on The B Lounge – the Bud Bus.
The bus was totally decked out — tile floor, leather couches, flat-screen TVs, and a mini-bar with Bud and Bud Light on tap.
Afterwards, as I was sitting at the bar having lunch and sipping a Bud Light, it occurred to me that life is pretty sweet when you can spend a Monday afternoon drinking and having a good time with your friends. I don’t have the same kind of job and schedule as everyone else, but I’m so happy right now, it doesn’t matter anymore. My schedule works for me, I love my jobs, my new friends are totally fun, and being able to party whenever I want makes it all ten times better.
I never thought I’d be waitressing in Jersey again this summer, but I can’t think of any place I’d rather spend the coming months. So, now it’s my turn: Beaches, bars, beer, boys, and Belmar — this is going to be the best summer ever.
