AN ESSAY IN ATTITUDES
I don't think you're quite old enough to have fought in the Congo or in the Rhodesian army. Ainsi...ou en Afrique? Chad? Djibouti? Nice mug. Very imperial. No Stoddard or Grant on the bookshelf?
My father would have liked you.
The Chilean wine is a faux pas, Codrington.Fatfriend.
Nonsense. I don't commit faux pas.
The Chilean wine was undoubtedly made from grapes grown in a vineyard owned by German expats who hastily made their way to Chile at the end of WWII.
Admiral, Only the English commit faux pas - and are sufficiently coy about it to adopt French terminology for the phenomenon. (As I'm sure you're already fully aware).
It's only members of the middle class, ambitious and insecure, that worry about faux pas.
Almost bought Chilean wine a few days ago. I went with malbec instead. Delicious.
A nice little cup there, it's just aptly sized for a good sip of Schnapps!
