2010 Year in Review

Why the fuck does everyone do their year in review posts in early-to-mid December? When you turned 11, did you decide to arbitrarily tell people you were 12 years old? When you buy a carton of eggs, do you expect to find one missing when you open it up (a blogger’s dozen?)? When you were in college, did you drink 11 beers, then brag to your friends that you just put down half a case (actually, I probably did that)? When you sing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” do you just leave out the part about the drummers drumming?

Well here at Hydrant Sippin’ we do things the right way. A year has 12 months in it. So you get your year in review in mid-January, and you’ll like it!

Without further ado…
