You know those logic puzzles from school, I think it’s called a sillogism or something like that… one of Aristotle’s inventions. Where you use two factual statements to make a logical leap to a third statement. Anyhow:
- Fact: Everyone tells me that when I’m sick, I should drink plenty of liquids.
- Fact: Wine is a liquid.
- Therefore: Drink plenty of wine when you’re sick.
Except it didn’t quite work out. Ok I did sleep a bit better last night. I think. Well at least, I fell asleep pretty quickly. But I don’t feel so good this morning… so I think maybe wine is not a good cure for the cold. Or the H1N1 Avian Swine SARS flu. I can’t tell which is which any more.
