Beer tour

I went on a beer tour to the New Belgium brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, the maker of Fat Tire beer. Some of you know of the beer and others may not. It's a pretty wild place and the staff are a lot of fun. After the tour went stopped by the tasting room. Once you find a place to sit or stand you are carded and then asked to select the 4 beers you'd like to sample. Before the beers are brought out you must answer the question of the day. Today's question was: Name three things you'd like to do before you die.

Keith's response:
Be face to face with a Grizzly bear.
Testify before Congress.
Sell roadside pies. (And specifically sour cherry and blueberry pies.)

Mine were not nearly as interesting but since some of you might care to know:
Sleep in the White House.
Tour Europe by hot air balloon
Wreck a ship in Antarctica.

Keith claims that I have accomplished the first one but I deny all allegations, Senator.

Wreck a ship in Antarctica isn't interesting? Man, Colorado must be some crazy place! I mean, here in Oregon wanting to wreck a ship or travel to Antarctica are individually quite interesting, but the combination! Why that's just a big ol' question mark! How did you come up with that?

I agree. Yours are equally interesting.

My question is, can you accomplish all three at once? Now that would be something! And here's my three things I'd like to do before I die:

1) Get a good night's sleep, without interuption from the kids.

2) Get a good night's sleep, without interuption from the kids.

3) Did I mention get a good night's sleep, without interuption from the kids?

How's that for interesting?

We found this mouse in our beer, eh? And our friend, he's a cop. and he puked! And he told us we could get free beer.

It might be wise for Keith to testify before Congress and sell his pies before he faces the Grizzly bear. By the way, who's making the pies?
