Funny Foto Friday: Liquor Store Signs

This week is a stepback week for my running. I week to rest, recharge, and reintroduce myself to my family.  "Hi!  My name is 'daddy'!  I am the one in all of the pictures!"  I went from a nearly obscene 66 miles last week to 53 or 54 this week.  In fact, what was once a 15 mile run on Tuesday is now my 15 mile long run on Saturday!  I know I harp on it like a "glaucoma" patient hits a bong, but it just goes to show how everything is relative.

It is sort of like when you get a new. . . . anything.  Sure, my underwear are fine now, but buy a few new ones and the see through worn parts in the crotch just aren't as appealing anymore. What was once twice as many miles as I'm used to running is now "recovery".  Honestly, that is why I love running and pushing my body to it's limits.  It responds, gets used to things, and asks for more.  Which is good, because next week I break the 70 mile per week barrier...... OYY!


Finally, my funny foto Friday.  This week has a bit of a delicious alcohol flair.  I have to think that if I drove by ANY place of business and they had a funny sign, I'd be much more likely to stop.  Happy Friday!


I don't get what is funny about this?  Zima is delicious.

Wait, teachers can't hit kids anymore?  Seriously, what CAN they do now?

Haha, family liquor....


Hilarious, child beer.  They can't drink beer, silly!!!


Ok, seriously guys?  SANTA??  Hilarious.


I don't know what Arboreto is, but I'm getting some.
Who am I kidding?  I'd drink it before any stiletto women showed up.

Happy Mothers day!  Here is some Arboreto.

Win/win either way.

Haha funny pictures!! And wow to your 70 miler next week! I think I've only ever broken the 20 miles in one week mark. I'm sure it'll only go up from there!

I like the Sav-Mor Liquor one because that's how I feel at 5pm every day!

See, every year they put the Christmas stuff up earlier and earlier. Really guys, it's September and a little early for Santa to be making appearances.

The Santa advertisement is one I used to design when I worked for the newspaper! Hilarious to see an ad for Reedsburg's Viking Liquor!

Those are awesome. :) And hilarious.

I know what you mean about everything's relative. Nowhere near your mileage, but when I was in marathon training, a pretty grueling trail half-marathon subbed for my short, easy run. I have to say, it was pretty cool to be able to say that.

Those were fantastic! If I drank, I would be craving some child beer right now!

I think I'm going to print the "teacher" one and post it on my door during office hours. I'm sure my students will love it. ;)
