    Took Mrs T out for a meal last week and bought her a glass of pink wine.

    £6.95 !!! Thats 8 or 9 dollars I think.

    I watched her take a big swig and my eyes started watering.

    "Savour it my love, take your time."

    I think that is an outrageous amount to pay for a glass of wine.

    It wasnt even fizzy.

    not at all uncommon. usually---by docs----attributed to the tyramine in
    the wine. Do not drink wine if you are taking MAO inhibiters. I find
    VODKA to be the best choice

    It is easy to imagine why Mrs. T would take a big swig of wine.

    A beer here is going for $6, I was told a few days ago.
    It's a lot cheaper to buy a bottle, Tommy, and enjoy it at home.

    Ah, another reason not to drink alcohol... the cost.

    I save probably $20-30 every time my wife and I go out to eat because we don’t drink alcohol. Probably another $10-15 because we don’t get coffee and dessert.
