|jimbojones||03:17 am - driving and introspection go together like the rhythm method and pregnancy|
I've always been mystified by the "beer goggles" phenomenon guys are always talking about, where supposedly alcohol makes them hit on ugly girls. I never understood that, because I never felt in the slightest affected by it - my motto, which I've been known to refer to as "Jimbo's First Rule of Alcohol", is "you can drink a plain woman pretty, you can drink a pretty woman gorgeous, but ugly... is just... fucking... ugly."
But during the several hours today that I was driving and not dealing with spontaneously exploding tires, while musing over this, I realized something: when I'm drunk, I hit on the really dumb, annoying ones.
So I guess I'm not invulnerable after all... my priorities are just different.
