Bike Tour 2019 #22

[Image by Koen]

I have been advised to not take alcoholic drinks until at least 12 months after my severe brain injury. Is it possible that there is a look of envy on my face as I watch Tim dealing with a very cold beer...on an evening that seemed made expressly for the enjoyment of cold beer!

 

And so our third day ends with cold beer [cold water for Me] and a pleasant meal, before we walk back to the dreaded hot-box we call home for another sweaty night.

That look is the definition of envy, Ray ! Cruel of your friends not to drink water in sympathy with you.
Ray: Tim and Koen drank my share of the beer as well as their own, Frank...and their moaning and lip-smacking seemed exaggerated to me! smile
Awwww.... Sorry Ray...
Ray: Tim seems to be enjoying that one...the first of several, Elizabeth.
Ray: Des quantités épiques d’Envy visibles sur ce visage, Martine.

Epic amounts of Envy visible on that face, Martine.

No question about it, you look definitely in need of a long cool beer. But look on the bright side. When you're well again you can go back to your old ways
Ray: On this 5 day bicycle tour I did break my drought, twice, and drank a single small can of beer with my friends...on both occasions it was, surprisingly, un-satisfying, Chris, and this was not expected.

However, in this picture, Koen definitely caught my envy.

Oh dear! That must be difficult for you. But you will be more hydrated than your friends. Well, perhaps now is the time to go teetotal? The room sounds grim.
Ray: Teetotal? Must I resort to such extreme measures?
IL vaut mieux assurer son bien être ...la patience aure de bons effets
Ray: Je suis sûre que ton conseil est judicieux, Claudine! Mais ... oh écoute!
You do look a bit wistful Ray
Ray: Nicely understated, than you, Bill.

Zero alcohol beers are getting better and better Ray, I often have one if I am driving.
Ray: I have tried a couple of them, Chad, and was not impressed...perhaps I should keep looking.

I could read the look before even reading your text, Ray
Ray: Nothing ambiguous about Beer Envy, is there, Lisl.
Sorry Ray, I really had to take that photo, couldn't resist!
Ray: You captured me in the act, Koen.
It is a true illustration of the feeling you are having. Only drool could convince us more. smile
Ray: I chase the shot without the drool, as I don't want you to get the impression I am brain damaged to the degree I cannot control my secretions, Mary. smile

Tim is being a tad cruel to you, Ray
Ray: I thought so, too, Richard...he could at least have said "This Beer tastes Off", or something like that".
And he's our best mate as well. The important thing is your up and running.
Ray: I think they invoked the "Mates drink your share if you can't" rule with just a bit too much pleasure, Brian.

You are not in a good position and you look the part. My humble suggestions:

1. In future Tim and Koen drink their beers from Coke cans. They need to show empathy

2. Find zero alcohol beer, but I have a feeling that it would not be available in the part of the world that you went biking.

I feel for you.
Ray: It was a character-building experience for me, Louis.
i am glad that you are sticking to the water Ray... the 12 months will pass quickly....petersmile
Ray: Already 12 months is nearly done, Peter.
Never mind, mate, just think how good the first one will taste smile
Ray: In truth, Tom, it has not been difficult to stop drinking, as drinking beer is not a big part of my life.
