Sophisticated by Comparison

Last night I had a lovely meal with old friends to celebrate my agent’s birthday. The owner of the restaurant, also a old friend, appeared with a case of half drunk bottles of red wine, left over from a wine tasting. Not being proud we quaffed the leftovers. Nadene, my REFOL, proclaimed that the most expensive wine had, “A hint of caramel and fart.” Ah the joys of life with an Australian. She can often make a Pocono mountain boy feel sophisticated by comparison.

    Actually John, that was ‘Fart with a hint of Caramel’ and you forgot my favourite:

    ‘Countryside urinal’

    Of all the things I have done that were blogg-worthy you chose this one?!?
