Giving In to Autumn

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy

Subject: Maybe It’s Fall After All

I give in. It’s fall.” Frank says.

What made you give in? The couple of cold days we’ve had?” Tabitha asks.

It’s hasn’t really been that cold.” Billy says.

Well, it’s fall, not winter. It certainly hasn’t been summer weather.” Tabitha says.

I know what convinced him.” Sara, who is sitting on the couch next to Frank watching tv, says. “Sam Adams has a new harvest mix out.

Have we really decided to tell the seasons by beer?” Ann asks.

That sounds like us.” Billy says.

Does Sam Adams have a spring ale, or are we going to be stuck in Winter until they release the summer pack?” Tabitha asks.

I don’t think they do.” Sara says.

I vaguely remember a spring ale, but no spring variety pack.” Frank says.

They’re releasing lots of packs lately. Maybe this year will be a first.” Sara says.

Or winter can last longer. I really like Old Fezziwig Ale anyway.” Ann says.

From Pictures

Fezziwig is a slang term used throughout America’s heartland meaning ‘man who gets very drunk at Christmas’. The term is believed to have originated in Wichita, Kansas.” Sara recites from her laptop.

Wikipedia?” Tabitha asks.

Yeah. Apparently Old Fezziwig is a Dickens character from A Christmas Carol. He’s a jolly fat man basically the opposite of Scrooge.” Sara says.

Seems fitting.” Frank says.

Lets compromise. It’s not officially fall until Frank brings home one of these harvest variety packs.” Billy says.

Sounds fair. I want to try to Dunkelweizen.” Sara says.

I’ve always enjoyed the Octoberfest myself.” Billy says.

I like the Cherry Wheat.” Tabitha says, looking over Sara’s shoulder to see which beers it contains.

It’s settled then.” Frank says, grabbing his keys and wallet and heading for the door. “I’ll be back in a bit.”

We’re not going anywhere.” Ann answers.

Nope. Hurry back though. Now I’m thirsty.” Sara says.
