We have some liqueur that, at last Christmas we discussed how old it was...I knew it was in the liquor cabinet when I first moved to France, it's a mountain thing, with Juniper berries etc..then, I thought, "well that's twenty years ago"!
And when we moved all the things out of that place when they sold it...we then took stuff like that to another old house;..then...they sold that one, and it's in my house!
I've opened it a few times, probably wouldn't be bad to sanitize your intestinal system...I'm not drinking it though!
I have a bottle of Polish vodka..as one night we picked up some Polish people stranded as their zloytls weren't enough for a hotel..and our car was breaking down and we couldn't find one either...we all crammed into the little car and we taught the husband his first French words, "complet" which means full...as we did every single hotel on our mountain road...finally we found one...and my husband insisted on paying for them, said it was his damn country...and please allow him to do so. It was three o clock in the morning...and nothing to eat but a few crackers and then, they came in and gave us a bottle of Vodka...quite touching...it's probably how they thanked people as they were staying in people's homes and had an exit visa for playing in chess tournaments.
We of course had a drink...(I never touch it...) and then it went into the liquor cabinet and is still there after twenty years! I know this might not be fair, but I've moved twenty times literally, so having something that long is significant.
I do have a jar of anchovies in the fridge, just two years old though. I have some nasty Twinings caramel flavoured tea bags...bought them five years ago...I know I've made a few Brits faint dead away, rightly so, they're horrid...I can't bear to throw them out though...
That's not too bad though, is it?
Oh microwave popcorn my students brought me, but I hate microwaves since I translated for Amana many years ago...don't know if I shouldn't give it to someone...
I was born under a wandering star.
