On children drinking wine


Being raised by persons of a European wine sensibility, I was often allowed a little of the wine with dinner in my youth.

This may have backfired when I took Catholic first communion. On the way back down the aisle, in my virginal white and presumably sacred thoughts, I whispered to my father in shocked undertones, "That wine was *terrible*!"

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
