Normally Mrs. Bottle does the Sunday entry, but today I am filling in on her request. She said that she had too many things on her “to-do” list to take the time to post. That is really a lose-lose, since you will now have to wait an additional week to read her wit and insight and it also forces me to write something on a day when I don’t have anything to say. Actually, that isn’t too different than a normal day, so forget I even said that. That probably makes it the same as a normal day for you, too.
What is Mrs. Bottle doing that is keeping her so busy? Well, right now she is watching Smallville, the TV show about Superman where he isn’t Superman and can’t even fly. He can run really fast, though, so that’s something. In Mrs Bottle’s defense, she has been watching this show for almost 10 years and it is the series finale. I also hear that he might actually fly in this one. That is pretty important and should be higher priority than informing and entertaining the readers of TBIAW. Also, that Clark Kent is pretty dreamy.

So, while she watches TV it is up to me to tell you about today’s drink, the White Russian. The White Russian is made of vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream. It had fairly pronounced vodka overtones, but it was still good with its creamy-coffee flavor. It also turns out that this drink is one of Mrs. Bottle’s favorites, but she still refused to write today’s post. She also refused to let me have more than a sip of the White Russian. After we had each tasted it, she asked if I would like to have the rest or have something else and she would finish it. Knowing what is good for me, I had something else.
Ed. Note: The contents of today’s post are possibly exaggerated for effect.
Ed. Note 2: The previous note was definitely not made just so Mrs. Bottle won’t be mad at Mr. Bottle.
