I ALWAYS get the beer

The end of September. It means a lot of things to a lot of people. To me it means beer. As in, time to collect my beer basket.

Each September the company I work for conducts their annual charity campaign. Lots of activities spread throughout the month to raise money for a couple chose charities. It can be a lot of fun spending time tossing bags, bowling, or watching women salivate at the bake sale.

One event that is always interesting is the auction. Workers donate items or services for people to bid on. Heated parking is a popular item here. But not the one I want.

I want the beer.

Each year a group puts together a beer basket. Each year I have dedicated my efforts to winning this particular auction. 2010 is not different.

In 2009 it was this group of fine bottles. In 2008 it was... uh, I don't know. I didn't take a picture of post a story about it. In 2010, it is a home state collection of New Glarus product.

I don't know why other people bother to make bids. They need to learn one simple fact. I ALWAYS GET THE BEER. No ifs, ands, or buts. I get the beer.

Hopefully people will take notice and learn to stay out of my way next year. Now where did I put my bottle opener?
