Not till the gin blossoms form. (Or a certain sinister currency comes into discussions of "gin games" around her...)

It's a neat piece.

Yes.
It'll have a disastrous effect on her spelling. Get her to become a connoisseur instead.

Richard said...

It's probably just research for a book. I'm sure she doesn't imbibe it herself.

I want her to go all aquavit and then write something about Scandinavia.

Important to keep your amateur status one would have thought ...

Margot Kinberg said...

Nope. Not when it's Megan.

Charles Gramlich said...

In this case, probably not.
