A teacup of wine please

Dear Hillary,
We’ve just had another extended holiday with no alcohol. This is supposed to be a tourist city and tourists like to have a wine with their dinner. What can be done about this?

Dear Gerry,
I understand you, but there are some basics you do not seem to know. First, “holiday” comes from “holy” day and this past holiday is one of the Buddhist special holy days, so it is very different from the forthcoming “Mother’s Day” for example, which has no religious significance. Sure, the bars won’t be making their usual results, but you will have seen that many of the bars were selling liquid refreshment in teacups!

  1. Seems like every holiday there are people who claim that their vacation has been ruined because they couldn’t drink for a day. If you can’t go a day with no liquor without it ruining things for you, you have a lot bigger problem than wine for dinner.
