Namaste Beer–I swear, y’all, I am not making this up. It is brewed with coriander, dried orange slices and lemongrass at the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware–the first state in the nation and the first with beer for yogis.
Yesterday after yoga class, Bonnie, our instructor, pulled out a bottle of this stuff to toast my birthday.
Now, I can hear yoga purists all across the country groaning at this sacrilege: Beer not Tea? Yeah, y’all, I do realize that this divergence from tradition might presage the end of the world but this stuff is really tasty. Namaste beer is not the path to enlightenment but, hey, I felt my chi buzzing just the same. It certainly was a birthday moment to remember. I think it’s a good time for a Namaste beer salutation–down dog time, everyone. Now, breathe…
Speaking of my birthday, I have a special message to all of you who listen to my husband’s morning show on the radio. No, I did not just turn 87. And, yes, my ant bites have healed. To the rest of you, I am not kidding! Wayne talked about these things on the radio to the local audience and to his international live streaming listeners.
When he said I was turning 87, I sent him a text with a simple message: “WTF?!” It took a while to get a response
Believe it or not, he did not know the meaning of WTF so he had to ask Deric, the other person on the air with him at the time. Deric’s first response was: “Man, you are really in trouble.” Then he explained the meaning of WTF. I thought everyone knew that. All I can say to Wayne is: “WTF, Dude? Seriously, you don’t know the meaning of WTF?”
All in all, I had a lovely birthday! Special thanks to the hundreds of Facebook friends who flooded me with well wishes. I love you all! Here is my birthday wish to you: May the coming year be filled with abundance and optimism–ignore the negative input and banish the fear-mongers. Move forward with confidence and conquer the day.
