Gout And About Tours…


“That’s gout,” she said with a finality that was pretty final.

“Don’t be stupid. It’s not gout,” I responded weakly (rather than fortnightly). “I’m not rich or privileged enough to have gout. I don’t even drink port.”

I knew where this was going. She looked at me through Grand-Master eyes.

“They say that research has revealed that red wine is very bad for skin conditions.”

My petard was hoisted.

“You’re not putting that in you blog are you?”

I did not reply. She waited, but didn’t reply longer.

“The green bin needs to go out, anyway.”Β 


The words Pyrrhic and Victory danced around my head…Β
