My 21st Birthday Present

Greetings Readers

I was cleaning up the humble abode and I was cleaning up a particular book shelf - dusting, pledging and what not.

I completely forgotten about this item once I had put this on the shelf once more back in the past.

What is it?.

This was the birthday gift that my mother gave to me on my 21st birthday. A customize glass beer mug with my initials and "21" etched on the side of the glass mug.

I have never used the mug for any type of drink. Just never occurred to me to use. I do not think this is an unusual gift. I do not think it is weird. or odd. I am very fond of this gift. Matter of fact, since I think my parents are going to be coming down to Denver hopefully by the end of the month I think I am going to show this to my mother and ask "Do you remember this?" I am betting that she probably remembers, but does not think that I still have this particular.

Is there a reason for this gift? Perhaps? but I have not asked nor do I really need to know. i think this was a nice gift and little did I know to this day that I would still have this gift. Unbroken and not given away. Matter of fact, I am curious how much this mug holds - so I am thinking that I am going to find out how much beer this mug holds.

I think this was the only gift that I received on my 21st birthday. Though, that does not tell how my 21st birthday went. Fucked up. I was working at Bennigan's on the night before my birthday and when the clock struck 12:00 midnight - my co-workers and manager said I am done working. Go have your first drink at the bar. Needless to say, that was my official drink when I turned 21st - the drink was Jack Daniels. Go figure. At that time Jack Daniels meant nothing like it does to me now. Yet, little did I know how much I would enjoy the Single barrel Jack Daniels in this time of my life.

Hmmm... My 21st birthday. Now, that is a story to tell - well of what I can remember of that entire day. Perhaps I will indulge you Readers later down the road.


Note: I put my Oakley sunglasses in the shot to give you Readers some indication of how big and tall that glass mug is.

Until the next time
