"We got both kinds: Country and Western!"

Lily decided to buy her father some wine for his birthday. At the wine shop, I asked, “What kind of wine do you want to get?” She considered her answer, then, with the keen eye of a scientist, observed, “I notice you two drink a lot of red and white wine.”

(As opposed to green and blue? Or is this an intervention?)

Then she turned around to find, right at five-year-old eye level, a bottle of Bandol rosé. “What color is that?”

“Pink. How about some pink champagne?”

Her immediate choice was Billecart-Salmon rosé, probably my favorite champagne ever, or second after the Cristal rosé. But we decided on a cheaper bottle of pink champagne, which was great. Good call, Putie.

    It’s comforting to know that the taste for finer things will exist in the next generation! Interesting that both your daughters are drawn to those delicacies très cher.

    I’m anxiously awaiting your selected posting and commentary of the Boston Marathon.
