    Partial to the occasional Rum and Black (or two)

    Rum and Black? what is the Black. I love Morgan Cokes or pina-coladas
    Rum and Black = Rum and Blackcurrant Cordial. Just a dash. Not syrup, a decent cordial.
    Anyone attempting to put Ribena in with your rum, pull them over the bar, drag 'em outside and give them a damn good kicking.

    Obviously not so popular these days..

    But I shot a man in Torn, just to watch him die.

     

    The best laid plans of mice, men and faction leaders often go awry.

    I am currently on a rum kick, like ICB I usually stick to whisky. Been drinking overproof dark rum lately.

    Keep out of reach of children.

    Nearly killed myself with that stuff when I was younger and talked more about limits than understood them. Even now vivid memories of messy bed sheets and bathroom walls looking like a crime scene comes to mind.

    I remember those days. I cut my teeth on Bicardi 151. Dangerous stuff. Fortunately the only child around here is still growing inside my wife so we are safe for a bit.

    DarkMark66 [2005722]

    How did you cut your teeth? Were you biting the bottle? No, that still doesn't make sense. Is it an expression? I have never heard it b4. I'm not trying to b a smart ass I am genuinely curious.

    megalomaniacal [1542618]

    Cutting your teeth is an expression that means to start doing something or your first experiences with something, particularly before you get good at it or know what you are doing. I think it references when a baby cuts it's teeth by chewing on things, thus preparing it for eating and whatnot.

    I know it is not a common saying, maybe it is an East coast thing lol.

    DarkMark66 [2005722]

    Oh wow, I have heard that b4 and yes I think you are right about the reference and it being an East coast thing. I was originally from D.C. (well Alexandria actually) and yeah I remember hearing it as a little kid now. Cool thanks.
    Its heard quite a lot here in the UK
