Sniglet of the Day: June 27

Buzzled (adj.)Right now I am buzzled. This is that feeling when you’ve had a really nice little drink, but can still focus enough to do simple tasks like cleaning and cooking easy meals, so long as knives are too much of a problem. Buzzled is a state in which one really should not drive in, but simply stay put and enjoy the little bit of a ride that has been given to you by way of the various breweries and distilleries of the world.

The closer you get toi the putting green, the more difficult the questions become, and if you’ve grown up with North American culture, many questions won’t make sense to you, since apparently, whomever came up with them is British.
