Cider House Rules Part II

I can always tell on a Saturday at the Bellevue Hill store when it's going to be a really troubling and upsetting day.

"Where are ya cold cases of cider champ"

(Obviously, like any normal genuine functioning member of society,I immensely dislike it when I'm called champ. Or buddy, or pally, or busta, or fella, or big guy, or cobba, or big mac, or big fella, or sport, or big man, or sunny, or squire, or boss. I could go on).

They are not talking about good cider, they are referring cold cases of something which tastes just plain horrible.

They are usually, and I'm massively pigeonholing (great Australian past time) here ; wearing their sunglasses on inside, attire of a singlet or shirtless, shoeless or thongs.

Usually have come straight out of the annual General Pants fashion catalogue.

Possibly accompanied by the famed flat rimmed American sports team Baseball, NFL, NHL, NBA cap, so on and so forth.

This all generally happens when it's warmer weather. Y'know, douchbag weather.

The kind of amateur drinking weather that is Hahn Super Dry or God save us, Corona drinking weather. Of Which both sell well in summer.

For lesser folk than you and I. That consume for terrible taste and inebriation rather than taste, fulfilment, enjoyment, love, disgust and obviously, inebriation.

Always out in force, in the warmer weather.

Always some ghastly music festival on to smatter their terrible lives against the wall for.

" we're going to 'WE LOVE'?" or "tell me your going to 'FUTURE'?".

I have absolutely no idea what acronym and nicknames you have for silly music festivals, you utter scum.

Moving on,

All you need to know is that we got some new French ciders that unlike most of the cider we sell that looks great and tastes like poo.

These French Beauties look impressive and taste like Venus De Milo.
