Christmas Lunch

Clipart showing a portrait of an old grannie

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 5 January 2022, alcohol.

When Aunt Gertrude stood statue-like, thinking,
I was shocked when she seemed to be sinking,
As she started to spin,
I caught strong reek of gin,
And ’twas then that I grasped she was stinking.

    1. I drank g & t as a teen, to try to be sophisticated. As I got older I’d mainly drink beer but would have malibu & coke to round off the night. Older still Irish whiskey or cognac or wine. Now I only drink wine, and never more than a couple glasses per night. The bottle I opened at Christmas lasted until new year.

    1. It’s funny how childhood memories scar our lives.

      I threw up on mulled wine when I was about 16 and even just a whiff now makes me wretch. Worse, I tried to pretend that I hadn’t thrown up and hid the offending trousers at the bottom of the wardrobe. You can imagine how they dmelled…
