(Yesterday we went to Charlie, Texas, for the peaches and Mineral Wells, Texas, for the water. We had a great BBQ lunch at Shotgun's BBQ in Mineral Wells, too.)

My husband usually always has an idea for something to do. I like the unexpected day trips he plans. Makes retired life fun.
That's usually my job planning the day.
I love unexpected spontaneous day trips.

He just brews chicory coffee according to instructions on package, along with one scoop of espresso grounds. A ****** of Bailey's in the bottom of a mug, pour in the brewed mix, top with warm frothed milk and cinnamon.
The frothing method depends upon where we are and what's on hand. We carry a small battery-operated stick when traveling but any small container with a lid, for shaking vigorously, will do in a pinch.
We do decaf and leave out the espresso sometimes, but the froth and Bailey's (or less pricey O'Mara's) are essential . It's quite the treat on a cold wintery afternoon.

How much Bailey's was that?

Sheesh....tried to figure out what you possibly could have said that got bleeped. First guess was right but I figured it is either really stupid extreme paranoia or a mistake...had to google to find out what could be possibly wrong with it and still think it's so remote as to just be stupid to bleep it out.

Oh yeah...came to this thread because I figured out a bright spot to my days, at least 6 out of 7 of them.
When I look out the window and it's a beautiful day and the lawn does not need mowing.

I searched but couldn't find any definition that would cause it to be bleeped.
For those who are wondering, the word I used commonly describes a 1-2 ounce measuring cup for liquor. An alternative definition would be someone who dances a ***.

edit: I'll be danged, bleeped again. It's a 3 letter word for an Irish dance. What the hey?

Absolutely! I also love getting up when I feel like it and having that first cup of coffee while others are scurrying off to work.

Now that's being a little too PC. I had to dig into the Urban Dictionary to find something offensive with the word in question. Apparently it involves combining derogatory slang for people of color with being of Jewish origin.

but really...........isn't that being a little ridiculous? There's at least 5 valid definitions for the word going back to 1675 and CD's going to censor all those in favor of slang that only exists because of the UD? Sorta gives validity to the slang doesn't it?

Having lunch with my old buddies everyday at a great resturant with a good bottle of wine and then afterwards performing a raucous, albeit euphonius flatus along with a demulcent eructation out in the parking lot with them before getting into the car for the drive home.....What a blast....pun intended....

j*gger which is a measure of alcohol used by bartenders.
And your other word would be an Irish J*g
