The Oregon Brewer's Festival
|A beer, a beer token, and the guidebook|
I said, "Guys with facial hair."
"I don't see any?" she said.
"You're kidding, right? This place is like a facial hair extravaganza! Didn't you see the guy over there who looks like Odin?"
"Norse god... wears a helmet with horns."
"Oh, yeah, that guy. Was he wearing kilts?"
|What is the male to female ratio at the beer festival?|
Tamara said, "What do you think the male to female ratio is here?"
I said, "3 to 1."
"You think there are that many women?" she laughed.
"Ruby, why don't you draw that guy-- the one with the really hairy neck?"
"Ew, gross, Dad."
|So many beards at the festival|
"Dad, he's staring at me."
"All the better. You should be able to get a good sketch, then."
I drew my bearded fellows right onto the paper covering my table top. Some of the beard types I captured:
The "King Leonidas," the "Adam Ant" (yes, I know he didn't have a beard, but if he did...), the "Texter," the "I ate the whole thing," the "I still live with my mother," and the "Freddy M."
