Maggie Monday: Saturday Night, Part Two
As always, I appreciate your cheerleading on the marquoir. I am as surprised as anyone that I keep stitching this thing! But what of Maggie? I foreshadowed that her regular "meal" of an appetizer and a martini had been disrupted recently.
Maggie headed to her usual Saturday night restaurant recently with her friend who drives on the Saturday outing. Maggie ordered her usual: a martini and an appetizer.
Her friend announced, "I'm not going to have an appetizer tonight, I'm having my martini and then dessert. For dessert, I'm having a chocolate martini."
So my almost 89 year old grandmother decided that her friend had a good idea; she canceled her appetizer order.
Later, my sainted aunt tried to point out to the old lady that this is probably not the best approach to healthful living: "You told the doctor you would only have one drink a day."*
"Well, a chocolate martini isn't a drink; it's not really a martini."
*She may have actually told the doctor one drink per week, but we only hold her to seven.
