#1: Shotgun a Beer
First American activity is checked off and at a BBQ no less (very American)...ok here's how it went...
Step 1: Get beer- extra points if its patriotic
Step 2: Make a hole in your can...try not to get it all over yourself
Step 3: Drink up
Step 4: Recover from shotgunning experience and promise to do better next time (for some reason I made it through college without ever doing this so I have a lot of catching up to do on my technique).
