As part of my attempt to participate more, I went to a local gin bar with a colleague today. She's been working at our company for several months now, I honestly thought it was longer! We've get on pretty well, probably more so than a lot of people at our company.

I like gin. Do you like gin?

When I first tasted gin, I thought it was disgusting. Turns out... it was tonic. Urrg, gross. I tried it again this evening and still vehemently agree. The actual phrase I used tonight was "it tastes like lemonade, but with an after-taste of soap".

I'm a fruity guy. I love pina coladas (and getting caught in the rain). Tonight, I had Malfy and Bathtub Sloe gins, while sampling some strange concoctions involving chilli and ginger. I'll definitely be sticking with the fruit going forward.

I had the best evening ever. It was so refreshing to just go out after work, with a single person instead of a crowd and just chat. We didn't get drunk or do anything dumb. We just sat in a booth, slowly drank our gins and talked about our lives.

3 hours later, we were hungry and left with intentions of making a home cooked meal. I'm writing this having just ate McDonald's...

If you read this, thank you for my evening.

    @craigpetterson I like gin too, but mostly as the summer nears. Little tonic or sparkling water over ice with fresh slice o' lime and lemon. Sipped slowly and savoured with easy conversation. Well done. Keep going!
