Dear Guinness,

Sometimes it's hard to be Irish, St Patrick's day is a killer. It's a double whammy for me as it's my birthday, I didn't stand a chance. I know you don't like to mix with other drinks, but I think your reaction to the champagne was a little violent, he was only trying to join in the fun and yes, I know he's french and you're a stickler for tradition, but next year, if he visits again, try to contain yourself, try to remember that I had spent all day with you, try to embrace him like you do our good friend oysters, please don't send me home after only 20 minutes in his company. You may argue that I love to dance, but there are spins and then there are spins....

Yours sincerely,


  1. HAHAHHAHAHAHA! You are the best writer in the history of all best writers!

  2. Oh I love that! Even if I am more of a champagne kind of girl. Don't hate me! And Happy Belated Birthday!

  3. Dear Virtual Friend,
