Claymore's Birthday

Postby claymore » Mon Jun 19, 2006 11:22 am

Drink will be taken somewhere on June 29th. I shall have advanced a year the day before.
How small a round can I get away with?
Regards
Claymore

Happy Birthday when it comes! Shame you don't live in Scotland as you'd get all those free bus trips.

You going to be afloat that weekend?

Round size is proportionate to age

. . . I think a drink for every year on this planet should suffice. Any particular hostelry in mind?

massive number of new forumittes inbound

ooh. This sounds good. I make that in excess of two hundred drinks already. Better make it at a pub with a lot of glasses.

How many drinks is it acceptable for each person to order when a 'birthday boy' is ordering a round? I can probably do about 20 pints if push comes to shove. Double that if it's weak stuff

20 pints won't be enough, unless claysie is only 20, which i am prety sure he isn't. You'll have to drink halves, or stay several days for the lockin.

I personally think it would be cheaper for claysie to buy a pub outright at this rate of take-up.

I certainly wouldn't mind staying a few days and getting my total up to his age. It's only polite after all.

That's another great idea.

Claysie, me old dressing gown, another year closer to aimlessly shuffling around in your slippers.

How is Dear Heart going to cope with the reduced stimulation? I fear the unfortunate women might have to seek alternative companionship.

Please accept all the best in absentia. If things go to plan we should be in the vicinity of Stromness on the 29th.

birthday

Postby tcm » Wed Jun 21, 2006 7:27 pm

congratulations, and sorry. Well, a bit sorry. I expect part of you would be overjoyed if planeloads of people turned up. Probably not the wallet part though.

I can't make cos i'm due in france or on yet another pesky bank job.

Happy Birthday

I'll offer to have TCM and DaveS's drinks if the 'biggest round' is in jeopardy.

..is the record, set by a country singer who bought a round for his entire audience, apparently.
