Growing up around alcohol

Back in the day when I was a kid, I remember my dad coming back from work and the first thing he would do is make himself a cocktail, He used to say that he needed a "snort" when he got home for dad it was one and done. I do remember him having the occasional beer on a hot Saturday or Sunday afternoon, and as a young kid I kind of wondered what the attraction was, so I took a drink from his beer and I thought to myself, “why does anybody want to drink this stuff”. Dad thought it was funny and I guess it was.  

When I was in college, I was one of the few students in my dorm that didn't drink, and I became very popular as a wingman because they would have somebody with them that could get them back to their dorm room. 

I'll drink to that!
