Nemesis

And exactly which part of "declining glasses of wine" did I not understand?
It was Forrest's birthday yesterday and we decided to surprise him and all go over to the Blue Lotus. I was soooo good, I had 2 soda waters, and then Forrest said "aren't you having a glass of wine? so I had 6. I'm an IDIOT!
This morning I got up ridiculously early and walked Molly for 3 miles along the beach. I looked down at my little pedometer to see how many calories I had burnt and it was only 198! That's only 1 glass of wine - I'll have to walk another 15 miles today to burn those glasses of wine off!
I have to go now, one of my exercise DVDs is about to start without me.

An idiot? Not so! I protest. I was just helping out. A long time ago, we gringos learned the Buffalo Theory from our Plains Indian tribes, the Cheyenne, Pawnee, Apache, etc. To wit: The buffalo herd moves only as fast as its slowest members. The slowest and weakest buffalo are the ones eliminated from the herd during a hunt, doing the herd a service by rendering it that much stronger and faster.
In much the same way, the human brain operates only as fast as the slowest brain cells. Sure, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But which ones does it kill first?
That’s right, the slow ones! And that is how come you are much smarter after 6 wines than after 2 sodas. And I could tell you were much smarter, because I had 6 or 7 Belikins myself!
Neuroscience aside, many thanks to you and Paul for helping to orchestrate my wonderful surprise 65th birthday, It is very important to me that you and Paul were on hand and there among my other favorite people. Bises, Forrest
