I have no intention of drinking again and I know full well the consequences of what will happen if I do.
I will unconsciously time you as you sip your Chardonnay and though I may not say anything, I’ll be baffled if you don’t finish your wine because your prefer one with more ‘citrusy overtones.’ It’s warm?
