Vodka, with whiff of vermouth and a proper olive and onion – no rubbish

29. Ever been in a bar fight?

Nope! Usually try to keep it down to a dull roar to avoid that kind of thing


30. An amusing vignette involving booze:

Many memorable moments but I will mention the one with six of us out driving around quiet country roads, drinking beer, stopped in a dark, out-of-the-way cemetery to take a much needed leak, all of us out of the car, watering the grass, and the sheriff’s deputy pulls in with flood light shining and reds flashing. Quite embarrassing for a bunch of half tight, teenage boys! Just a stern lecture, escort home to the driver’s house. No ticket or further repercussions.

Curley: And yes, before you ask, I did bring my new "bullet" machine home and mixed a margarita straight away. Works fantastically. Thanks for the gift!
P.S. Now that I mention it, I think I'll have another one of those!
