We were in this liquor store buying some beer, and at the counter they had these Pocket Shots. They came in Gin, Tequila and Vodka. The lady behind the counter said they'd had Scotch but had sold out. Go figure. We bought the vodka and took it out to show all our friends. We all had a laugh.
What the hell? What kind of alcoholic market agency thinks up this stuff? We guess you never know when you're going to need a shot - in airplanes or in cabs, at work or at bar mitzvahs. Actually the Vodka Pocket Shot tasted fine and did the trick. Really, it's pretty ingenious.
We might go back for another little pouch of booze to keep handy at our next court hearing...
