Default Red Solo cup

I really ain't no drinkin man for a number of years now. Wife n kids, job, house, etc. tend to make it hard to get loose. About once or maybe twice a month the stars and the moon align for me, and that's ok. Recently though, my young son learned to walk and now he's up in the low cabinets diggin around. Well tonight wife n kids are tucked in and I'm moving my bottles up top. So when I came across the rum I took a quick slash. No particular reason and it hit like fire like the first one always does. But now I sit with my red solo cup filled with ice, mount gay rum n a splash of water. So cheers to you, red solo cup.

I'll be glad when the Doc gets me off Coumadin. I would love a drink.

Only thing that is better than a red solo cup is two red solo cups. Seriously try doubling them up by putting one inside the other then pour your drink in. Its benefit is twofold. One, it keeps your drink colder. two, you know which drink is yours.

I do this myself and actually the benfeits can be three-fold depending on what you're drinking. I typically drink Jack and Ginger in my Red Solo Cup and the second cup serves as a mixing cup.

Roger on that. Made far too many of those during the long weeks after Katrina.
