My New Hero

It's official. I have a new hero.

Up to this point, my heroes included Bruce Lee, Michael Jordan, and whoever is currently sleeping with Megan Fox.

Today... Today, I have added a new hero.

He's not an athlete or a martial artist.

He's not currently sleeping with Megan Fox.

What he is doing is making the world a better place. He's working every single day to make others happy.

Could you ask for a more noble profession?

He doesn't call himself a hero. He considers himself just a man doing his job.

That man... Is Jeff Arnett.

I salute you Mr. Arnett. You truly are a hero.

I think this man is second to Michael Jackson in the "I have the best job ever and I rock the world". Michael Jackson...can just dance and sing and...dance on cars. And this man can taste Jack Daniel's all day. There are good people in the world!

I used to work at the Jack Daniels place doing security. Even got to see the million dollar fire engine they have for parades. Too bad that its a dry county.

Not sure if this was the man I met when I went on the tour of the place last Oct but I've been there. You can get drunk off the fumes in the place alone...

It's a little slice of heaven, let me tell you. And when we found out it was a dry county, we had to weep a little that such a wonderful thing was locked away in such a horrible place...

I've been there, and you really could get drunk off the fumes alone. Of course, always free lemonade at the end of the tour. Damned good lemonade too. But no Jack.

I have their distillery signature glasses with the signature of each master distiller. They are heros.

I wonder... If you kill one of them, do you get their job?

You just like to make us feel depressed about our not-being-paid-to-drink lives, don't you?

The Jamison distillery in Ireland is lovely too. You can practically get drunk just breathing the 6,000 bottles worth that evaporate daily...mmm...Angel's share...

I'd been working too hard and am catching up on old posts.
