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!
