Those words “What will you have?” are ones we hear repeated over and over at this time of year.
My answer to the question varies with my mood, the time of day and where I am at the time of asking. It might be a cup of black coffee for elevenses, a glass of wine with lunch or dinner, providing I am not driving, and a G&T if the sun is over the yard arm.
To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine… And those of you who don’t, I remind you of the old saying:
In wine there is wisdom,
In Beer there is freedom,
In water there is a bacterium.
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia Coli, (E. Coli) – bacteria found in faeces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of Poo.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, gin, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and Fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poo, Wine = Health
Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
