Weirdest places to have discussions about whisky
SHE SAID: I'm not going to go into all the details as I fear some people may poke their eyes out with the mental imaging I may create, HOWEVER: I have just come back from a doctor's appointment as it was time for my yearly "women's" check-up. You can imagine my complete surprise as the doctor had her hands, errrr full, and said: "So, I read in the paper you are doing a ladies only tasting on the 20th. You like whisky eh?".
Being the enthusiast I am, I proceeded to answer all the questions she had about it as well as provide a bit of guidance and education about it such as Irish whiskey is not Scotch and that she really should try Forty Creek Canadian whisky as it's to die for!
I talked whisky while she was busy doing her thing. When "we" were done, she thanked me for the whisky 101 lesson and I thanked her for the maintenance check (for a lack of a better term?!).
So, I'm curious my blog followers: PLEASE comment on this post and tell me where is the weirdest place you have ever found yourself in the middle of a great conversation about whisky.
I figure legs in stirrups staring at the top of my doctor's head as got to be up there on the list?!
