This week's drinking bon mot

"Drinking makes such fools of people. And people are such fools to begin with that it's compounding a felony."

Robert Benchley (1889-1945)

Drinking certainly made a fool of me Friday night. I don't think I did anything too bad, but there is enough uncertainty to make me very nervous.

The problem is the Friday night bartender is cute but not model type cute, and so seems eminently attainable.

Oh dear, Cowboy, not that old delusion! Did you miss the cartoon
I put on here a few months back?

I think it was David Baddiel who once said of The Spice Girls: "They're fit, but not superfit. They're quite fit for checkout girls at Tesco's; not fit enough to be intimidating. You feel you'd have a chance."

That seems to be the zone your barmaid is in. But tell us, is she Sporty or Scary? Or Ginger....?

I thought you'd be objecting that Benchley was no lawyer.

Foolishness, surely, is only a misdemeanour?
