My 85-year-old mother and I called in to see Garry at the local supermarket this afternoon. A young woman had set up a table in Garry‘s booze department and was promoting ‘fun’ wine in a can. She offered Mum a sample tumbler of Chardonnay.
Garry the purist tried to warn Mum off. ‘No, not wine in a can!’
Mum downed the sample in a gulp, pulled a face and said, ‘Thank you, but I don’t buy wine in a can.’
True. Mum buys wine by the bottle. She only drinks wine in a can when it’s free.
