When I was younger, I became quite funny - meaning fun to be around - when drinking beer, but only melancholy and blue when drinking wine. Which wasn't so good for the world's wineries but what did I care.
Nowadays, things have changed. I am still funny when drinking beer - or at least that is what the geeks laughter tells me - but the same happens when I drink wine. Or Martini, but that is a different story.
The only thing that changed between when I was younger and nowadays is the quality of the wine.So mark my words: Beware of the cheap stuff. It only makes you cry. Go get the better stuff, it only makes you cry if you think of your bank account.
