Lawyers are renowned for being great mathematicians ! Uhmmmmmmmmm.. NOT.
However, one thing we are good at is : Alcohol. This skill was developed through enduring several years of Law School. True Story. Click here for scientific proof.
For example, Lolita (who is also a lawyer) 's dad is a profesionnal wine-taster / specialist (remember his wine cellar?). He will be working at the "Wine & Spirits show" next weekend and asked his beloved daughter to give him a hand. Lolita will be pouring wine samples to strangers from noon to 9pm. And now, this is where it gets interesting, her dad asked her if she would like to be paid "in cash" or "in wine".
Her answer : "In wine, of course !"
Her logic : Rather than getting paid about 100$ in cash, they'll give her 100$ worth of wine at cost price. That could be roughly about 12 bottles. Plus, if she's ever short on cash .. 100$ wouldn't go a long way but wine, on the other hand, would totally help her forget she's short on cash. It's pure genius.
100% pure lawyer math & logic
I began doing some math of my own yesterday. You know, just to keep my brain active during my
weeks months of unemployment.
I started off with things I'm familiar with :
Gin + tonic water + slice of lime = Gin & Tonic
Lychee liqueur + vodka + a few lychees = Lychee Martini
This boosted my morale and I figured it was time to try something new :
Sparkling wine (perhaps champagne) + peach purée = Bellini
Now I've heard about Bellinis through many, many of you bloggies but I have yet to try one. I'm super excited and I've enlisted the help of my dear friend Violet (not a lawyer but she's in law enforcement / immigration so it's all good, lol) to get on this mission as quickly as possible. I will report to you as soon as we do !
Speaking of Violet.. she and I had a movie night last night. We bought lots of veggies, dip, chips and chocolate. Added a nice bottle of red wine. Watched "Brothers" and "Up in the Air".. both really good movies btw ! It was an awesome evening, filled with drinking, eating and drooling over hot men.
I'll leave you with one last math equation :
Red wine + an awesome friend + the hawtness of Jake Gyllenhaal =
Best. Evening. Ever !
This guy doesn't even have to take off his shirt to be hot ..
.. but I never (ever) protest when he does.
