When the neighbor rang the bell tonight I was not going to go over. But who could resist an 80+ year old woman pushing vodka? Not me.
Off I went with my freshly swallowed Benadryl (bad allergy day!).
I said no twice, but by proposition number three I could no longer hold her or her husband off the bottle.
When they poured my glass I expected them to do the same for themselves.
But, no they did not. My French is passable enough to communicate a "why not you drink vodka?" I assume that might be what I sounded like, maybe worse.
To which they respond "tres forte", simply stated too strong, while pouring themselves a nice port.
I do not have the vocabulary nor the heart to tell them I generally do not drink vodka straight.
Cheers and good night.
PS. you all suck for not commenting on yesterdays post. Love you, mean it.
