Boxed Wine, A Happy Hour Thanksgiving.
This will be my briefest post ever (although I am sure to find a way to make it much longer than it needs to be). I just had to tell someone.
I am staying in a cheap Dublin hostel for my last night, it being the end of my trip and my budget. I am in the common area/kitchen because hostels don’t have desks in their rooms. Or at least this one doesn’t.
You know those plastic file-folder boxes? That you can fill up with files and then shove in a closet or under a desk?
There is one in the kitchen right now. A member of the hostel staff is pouring red wine and orange juice into it. And adding sliced oranges.
On the side, in big letters cut out of bright construction paper, it says…
“HAPPY HOUR DRINKS.”
So. That’s my Thanksgiving. I do have a lot to be thankful for. Might be enough to fill a plastic wine-and-orange-juice-filled office file box.
