For Sadje’s What Do You See? prompt.
There’s a sign in my local pub that says in big bold letters, Drink Responsibly, and beneath it in teeny-weeny letters, Don’t Spill Any!
I admit I’ve suffered a few mishaps like drenching a white tablecloth with red wine and spilling my pint in a bloke’s lap which caused him considerable embarrassment as he left the pub and walked down the street!
I once spilt a drink on someone that was telling a joke. I never heard the end of it!
I don’t cry over spilt milk, but I did shed a tear the time I tipped over a glass of very expensive whisky.
Having been the landlord of a somewhat lively drinking establishment for many years, I’ve done my fair share of mopping up. Butterfingered bar staff, tipsy tipplers and dosing old-timers have all given me cause to break out my bucket and sponge.
I was going to tell you a joke about when I spilt beer on my computer and it got Corona virus, but it won’t make sense to those that are not familiar with beer brands so I won’t bother!
So, let’s raise our glasses and…whoops, sorry!
