'Welcome to Plathville': 22-year-old Ethan is elated trying whiskey for first time, says 'it smelled smooth'
Living in a closed-off farm, away from a life that most of us think of as normal, can have its own share of consequences. Growing up, the Plath kids didn't have access to phones or the Internet and were cut off from any sort of worldly knowledge, which meant when they were finally venturing out on their own they would stumble on regular stuff and would revel in it as if it were a discovery.
The same happened when 22-year-old Ethan Plath spotted a few packets of jello shots at a departmental store he thought were named funny and wondered if they were supposed to be consumed a certain way. One was called "buttery nipples". He immediately asked wife Olivia Plath if it was meant to be eaten off of the said body part.
The couple had a good laugh as they picked up a few bottles of drink. While Olivia appreciated his enthusiasm and curiosity, a part of her said "really, you never heard of that? Like really?"
Ethan went for whiskey, something he had never tried before. Olivia who was more experienced in the matter said he must drink the whiskey from the bottle, which he did and couldn't stop gushing since. At first, he was skeptical and even asked who did something like that, but Olivia assured him that that's how it's done. He didn't regret doing it, which was evident from his wide smile during the confessional where he admitted to the drink being smooth.
"It just smelled smooth. Like high-class type thing. I wanted to say boujee but I don't want it means. I heard Olivia say it" Ethan smiled as he told Olivia that he enjoyed it more than beer, which she agreed to and said that it gets one intoxicated a lot faster. Ethan even asked her to restrict his alcohol consumption for the night as he has to work the next day. The couple then played some piano before calling it a day.
