    Why does it always seem that many theologians are openly proud drinkers? I wish Baptists were that bold….and honest!

  4. A double Laphroaig with a cube of ice is perfect, thankyouverymuch. That picture looks like a cosmo! (Are those fighting words?)

    d.w. – ICE?! In LAPHROAIG?!!

    Ketchup is fine on a burger – but on fillet mignon? Ice dulls the taste buds; it is also an impediment to the nose (therefore tainting the flavour as well as the taste). A little water – at room temperature – is fine in a Laphroaig, but, ideally, even the water should come from streams near the distillery. But ICE – you not only sin, breaking the seventh commandment (the sixth if you’re Lutheran or Catholic), you commit heresy. And what lies at the far end of this whisky wedge, Coke? So, with deep regret and a heavy heart, I hereby withdraw your invitation to the the Foucault bathhouse party that we’ve organised at “Faith and Theology”. May this act of church discipline lead you to repent and return to righteous inebriation!

    Well, if I dare place the race card I must say that black baptists have a much better shot at this than their white counterparts.

    You maybe be right. I grew up in a storefront church with a bar right next to it. LOL!

  8. Dear sir, I meant no offense! A single cube is all I do! One! I have no more than one one in glass. I have used water in the past, but I shall give it a try again. Consider me responding in obedience, and of course, thats rare for one with major anabaptist sympathies.

    Ice or no ice, d.w., there is special bond among Laphroaig lovers (and whisky snobs are insufferable). It is now 7:30 p.m. here in Swansea. I have just poured myself a double dram of the Islay aqua vitae. It may be a bit early in the day for you, but Iechyd da (To your health), dear friend!

    This conversation reminds me of my father’s snooty retort to the waiter as he served the searing steak to the table.

    “Sir, would you like steak sauce with your tenderloin?’
    ” I certainly hope not!” said Dad.

    How, pray tell, son of mine are you affording this sort of luxury on an adjunct faculty member’s salary? And why was I not invited to imbibe?
