Cowart's Common Room
Advent 10 - Quote

“Pray, dear madam, another glass; it is Christmas time, it will do you no harm.”

William Makepeace Thackeray

(The Kickleburys on the Rhine - which I have not read! The trouble with me and drinking any alcohol is that is makes my nose and cheeks go red!)

Fennie's Avatar That would make a wonderful line for a short story. The gentleman sounds a beguiling sort and Faith's nose is already red. It is not the first time he has offered another glass. Besides it is a Friday afternoon in February and even the lateness of the Orthodox Calendar is not quite as reckless with the dates of yuletide as that. Beware bodies under the table; beware gentlemen rotund of proportion. The glass might not do harm but he might! Rolling Eyes
