Last But Not Least

I’d like to leave you with a friendly reminder: It’s getting warmer now and the bars are opening up the outside areas and the beer is flowing and it’s just about now that people start to come out of their cabin-fever issues and start to stretch their legs. Unfortunately they’re stretching their mouths too. I’m talking to the guys now.

In the springtime we get a lot of calls at the bars where guys get into fights and sometimes beat up because of running off at the mouth too much. They can’t help it. Its springtime and their thoughts turn to the pretty girls in the bars who now don’t have to wear all that — clothing. Brains go south and with the loss of blood in the neck and head region, men begin to babble incoherently. Coupled with alcohol, they soon begin to feel they are invincible and, for some reason, totally acceptable to anyone in any situation.

It is during the spring that we get calls of someone getting beat up after he sat down at a table to speak a pretty girl — completely ignoring the guy sitting next to her — not the 90 pound weakling but the guy who bends things like steel, when he’s bored. Be careful.
