What will you have?

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.

  2. Grannymar,

    Here is a story to make you smile the next time you see a bottle of wine….

    Sally was driving from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Najavo woman walking on the side of the road.

    As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Najavo woman if she wanted a ride. With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got in the car.

    Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Najavo woman, but the old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

    “What’s in the bag?” asked the old woman.

    Sally looked down at the brown bag and said,”It’s a bottle of wine, I got it for my husband.”.

    The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.

    Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said..

    ” Good trade.”…….

  3. I totally agree, water is for washing and peeing in . . wine is my everage of choice! Yesterday I was watching a news item re pregnant women and the effect of alcohol on the unborn. Now apparently only a skeric of alcohol can cause birth defects. Bollox! If that were the case, half the Mediterranean population would be morons!

    (oooh . . teensy weensy bit angsty today . . . must be the nicotine withdrawals!)

  4. No truer words have every been scribed! I couldn’t agree more, Grannymar. 🙂 I’m partial to a cuppa in the morn, but as the sun plops itself down for a good nights rest, so too does a wine cork on the kitchen counter. 🙂
