Tale of a beer lover

He was apprehensive after his marriage! After catering to the demands of the competitive world, he occasionally winds up his day with a bottle of beer. But he is not an addict! He doesn’t search for occasions to get drunk. Instead he picks up a bottle when he is really tired.

He was not sure about his wife’s conviction. During the initial days of the marriage, he was relieved to find his wife did not object to drinking. Her dad drinks occasionally too.

Armed with confidence, he bought a bottle of beer home. He checked his wife’s reaction while putting the bottle into the refrigerator. He was happy for not finding a disapproving look.

After a while, he took the chilled bottle out of the refrigerator. He took a beer mug and poured the beer into it. Then, he sat in front of the TV before taking the first sip.

To his surprise, his wife was towering over him when his lips touched the glass. She exclaimed, “What are you doing? You are impossible! You are an addict. My father dilutes his drink with water before drinking. He pours only a small amount of alcohol. You are consuming this as it is!”.
