If you aren’t subscribed to Stuff Christians Like, you need to be. Jon’s satirical view on the Christian subculture is amazing. With pin point accuracy, he deconstructs the stupid trends in the Christian Ghetto. Today he decided to tackle the subject of finding out if a friend drinks beer too.
With the majority of Christian’s in America being against drinking (at least they openly are ), Jon gives seven ways that you can subtly find out if a Christian friend drinks too. My favorite is number five…”The Anything”
When you are going to come over their house, call a few days before and offer to “bring anything you need, like drinks.” Make sure you stress the word “anything” over and over again. What is so great about this move is that it puts the pressure back on them. Now, they are faced with the decision to ask you to bring wine or Sprite. What will they say, what will they say? Oh the intrigue!
I’ve done this several times. You just have to be careful. Because most of the time they will throw it back at you and say, “Oh bring anything you want to drink.” It’s like a couple of Jr. Highers trying to figure out if the other one likes them. If I get the anything response back, I ask at that point if an adult beverage would be ok. It’s a little risky, but still better than showing up with a six-pack to their daughter’s 5-year-old birthday party.
So do you have any tricks for finding out if the new friends that you make are drinkers too? Or do you just wear you favorite Guinness hat and toss them a cold one when they ask if you have anything to drink?
