Speaking of hilarious old people…
This one comes courtesy of my best friend’s Grandmother (may she rest in peace).
His mother had gone down to visit her in Florida. They went out to dinner one night. His mother ordered a glass of white wine. The following exchange ensued:
Grandmother: “Let me try a sip of your wine.”
Mother: “You won’t like it. It’s a little dry.”
Grandmother: “Don’t worry. I’ll add a Sweet’N Low.”
Generations probably spent perfecting that vintage.
The vintner must have rolled in his grave.
I’ve always wanted to send this one on to Neil Simon. I think he could craft an entire character around this line, if not an entire play.
