As fate would have it, the man who told me the story about the Romeo y Julieta Cuban cigars (previous post) was from Verona.
As we stood beside a display of Champagne, I asked him which was his favourite Champagne.
“Me too! (FATE!) I love the Billecart-Salmon Rosé.”
“You must drink a lot of pink champagne…”
Why (insecurely checking my lipstick)??
And he moved very close and said, “Because your lips are so pink.”
And how does this star-crossed tale end?
Let’s just say, as they do in Romeo and Juliet, that I was the very pink of courtesy.
