I like to take my friends Nick and Liam out to tipple all the time.
These two blokes are my favorite drinking companions. They are quite generous and never let me pay for a round. They don't wander off to play pool in the middle of a good conversation. They listen to me, even my dreamy drunken ramblings. They don't hit on other women. They even insist that they can't finish their drinks on a regular basis, and push them over to me. Occasionally, they have carried me home, and they never dump me into a taxi and tell me to sleep it off.
Most endearing of all: Liam wears cowboy outfits right out of spaghetti westerns.
These drinking buddies are useful to have, especially since when I am talking to them, I never seem to get hit on by tiresome people in bars.
