Why do you think box wine was invented?

Yes, because otherwise I just want to sit down and say "fuck it."

What is "sober"?

and what are "chores"?

Yes.
Because I always do house chores the first thing in the morning and even though I'm retired I don't drink until at least a respectable cocktail hour.

Huh, that's funny I took the week off to burn some vacation time (ours carries over year to year) ended up doing a lot of honey do's also.
Mostly sober.... mainly cause I just can't drink like I used to.

But now I'm enjoying a few cold ones and firing up the grill

For me, about 1600 - I don't ever start drinking before 1600.

Usually.   If it's burying bodies and trying to match limbs to torsos, I usually have a few.

A lot of my chores involve power tools and motorized equipment.

I tend to stay sober since I would like to stay attached to all my appendages.

Sometimes when I have been hard at it all day I might have a beer or two while mowing till dark.

I did add a cross fence in my pasture once during a rainstorm while drinking beer with my neighbor.

We were both fairly buzzed by the time we got done.

Fence ended up pretty straight believe it or not.

The question assumes I'm sober at all AND I do house chores.
Link Posted: 4/20/2017 8:07:20 PM EDT
[#16]
Some, most of them actually...

Despite what the warning labels say the only way to operate heavy equipment is buzzed.

Because I'm an adult, that's why.

I don't drink.
I can think up better ways to fuck up chores sober.

I do house chores nearly every day. If I was drunk/buzzed every time - I'd have a problem.

Well, yes. I've done everything sober for the last year and a half, and I'll be doing everything sober for the next year and a half or so.

I gotta get my shit done before I start drinking.
Otherwise nothing but drinking gets done.
I think I just wrote (or probably plagiarized) a country song.

I once changed the AC filter after I drank two Coronas. 30 days later I realize I had the arrow pointing down.

It is easier and less aggravating to do house work if I'm drinking a beer. Usually I lose my beer somewhere anyway and don't consume much if it.

I do get a TON of stuff done around the house though. Finishing up installing a bathroom right now actually. Busch Light makes drywall taping slightly less sucky.

Pro tip: for extra super cleaning power, take a caffeine tab if drowsiness occurs.

You'll be shocked in the morning at all the shit you took care of!

This is how you do it. I like to pound an energy drink or two, down 3-4 shots, then get busy.

The key for me though, put on headphones and music.

At the end of the day its always, "holy crap i got alot of stuff done," when using the above method. Time just flies by and you dont even notice the tedium of whatever it is you are doing.


But then again, when mowing the law at one of my houses (5 acres) i also like to put on full riding gear in addition to the above. Its like im blasting down the neuremburgring or the isle of man, instead of mowing the lawn.

Negative. Whenever I'm cleaning up around the house, doesn't matter what I'm doing to help out, any domestic chores every time I pass the refrigerator I take a swig of ice cold Tito's or whatever maybe sitting on the bar just to help numb my pain.

Most chores yes.  Except dishes, they're like a fat chick, I'm definitely not doing them sober


I'd have the wife do them, but she doesnt do them right, usually leaves too much shit on everything

I do chores pissed off.

When I see something that isn't clean or organized I get pissed off and fix it.
Or
The wife yells at me for not doing chores, which means I get pissed off and then do it.

I should start adding in a few beers or shots in the mix to make it more enjoyable.

Do you do house chores sober?

Sure.  And nekked too.

I make a mix of one part PCP, one part crack, one part heroin, one part meth, a sprinkle of bath salts, two parts purple koolaid, some crushed up goofballs, and stir it into a tumbler of tequila and rum mixed.

Nope.  I put on some tunes, pour me a glass of Kentucky Bourbon and go to town.
