Today’s post references yesterday’s about the intensity of Dallas summers and the importance of staying hydrated. Depending on your point of view, this photo is either the ridiculous or the sublime. It’s funny, but I never drank beer as I do since moving to Dallas. It is the quintessential thirst quencher. Back in the days when I was running distances, I would come home, open a beer and jump in the pool. It was one of those perfect combinations after which you felt totally relaxed and accomplished.
