That Taste of Miller Lite

Tonight I did that rare thing, and drank a Miller Lite.  I bought some at Costco a number of months ago, and there are like 4 or 5 of them left in the fridge.

I poured it into a glass.  Also, a rarity, as I'm usually a bottle drinker...

I took that first sip, and I was transported back to Anaheim and the hotel that gave you two free beers each day, choice of which was Miller Lite.

I remember the hotel, because it had a garden courtyard, and I read Basil and Josephine there.  Or at least a few of the stories.  And I did this drinking Miller Lite.

Those stories, the Basil and Josephine stories, were some of the best I've ever read, and yet I probably couldn't remember many details these many years from then.  I remember Josephine was so sad in the end because she had wasted all her love by the time she was nineteen.  And Basil, well, he was just very funny.

And then there's the Miller Lite.  I probably shouldn't be drinking this beer.  (It's me third one tonite!)  But, hmm, that taste...  It really isn't bad for what it is.
