Bon mot for the week

"'Beer damage' can be repaired by more beer."


My reproach to The Weeble a couple of months ago, when he was being feeble about coming out for a drink on the grounds that he was still suffering the "damage" he'd done to himself the night before.

Of course, this approach does not work with all beverages. It is almost inconceivable that anyone would contemplate addressing 'tequila damage' with more tequila, for example. Vodka has left me with lingering regrets - and an averse palate - for a few days as well. And sake. Or baijiu - ugh!! Or anything flavoured with anise. But beer, wine, and - usually - whisky I find to be fine for putting you back to rights again the next day.
