Do you own a flask?

    I'm speaking, of course, of a flask used to store and transport alcohol (not chemicals). I know flasks have been around forever and a dark liquor, such as whiskey or bourbon, is meant to be put in them.

    When asked by a friend what i would like for Christmas, a flask popped into my head. The stainless steel flasks can be bought for $10 and last as long as you want them to, really. I could see some instances when I would use them, but others when it wouldn't make sense. I do love whiskey though.

    Someone convince me either way.

    I haven't used mine since college and sneaking bourbon into football games, but I'm more of a beer drinker. I do still have these, which a friend gave me and I've never used:

    It's useful because as a Sparty fan you can fill it with kerosene in case you run across a stray couch.

    I got one as a groomsman's gift a few years ago. I haven't used it in about 2 years, but that's mostly due it being packed in storage during multiple moves. If I could dig it out right now I would.

    I don't drink and I own five.

    It's a popular groomsmen gift.

    No. But then again, I'm only 38, not 76.

    I think it's one of those things that you have if you're under 21 or over 65.

    I have a large stainless steel one that fits perfectly in the back pocket of my jeans. It's a good thing to have handy at outdoor public events like football tailgates and Mardi Gras parades.

    I recall a flask being a must with the faux hip set in college. :D

    I didn't own a flask in college and today I woke up and randomly thought, Why didn't I have a flask in college?

    I've been given many as groomsmen, birthday and Christmas presents. The only time I ever use one is when I can put it in the inside pocket of a suit, which for me is pretty much weddings, funerals and job interviews.
