Man Flu

For 2 days now I have been suffering from the severest form of man flu, at one point it was touch and go if i'm honest, well tonight the crisis deepens.
I have run out of cooking whisky for my honey and lemons, in the medicine cupboard I can only find a bottle of White and Mckays, nothing special in its self but I won it in a charity raffle at one of my first Lodge meetings, then there is a bottle of Harrods blended which My dear wife was presented with over 20 years ago and finally a half bottle of McCallans malt which I was given for my 40th, a couple of years ago !

As I am complete ignoramous when it comes to whisky, which one would be best in my honey and lemon ? Or should I pack Linsey off to Morrisons for a Litre of Bells at £14.85 ?

I hate these dilemmas when I am not well.

Martin

Re: Man Flu

Sir you have my deepest and profound sympathy.
As usual women do not understand the magnitude and severity of "the condition' surely if she had an ounce of compassion she would have scurried down to the "offie" for the appropriate whiskey without instruction.Sadly the women folk of today are not a patch on our mothers.
Needless to say as I write this all of the men in my local shebeen are praying for your speedy recover and that herself does the right thing.
God willing if you regain your strength..... a stern word with herself is in order.
Your in our thoughts and prayers.

Re: Man Flu

I would say the McCallans is probably knocking on its sell by date, I'd go for that.

Reminds me Martin, I donated two bottles of Raki for the raffle. I gave them to our Charity Steward in the bar. Two flights up the marble staircase the Tesco bag gave up!

Re: Man Flu

Try mixing all three together it should do the trick and you will get a better blend than Bells. It's the aircon germs it gives the worst man flu hope after your cocktail it helps. I found a bottle of Jamesons in the stash this afternoon, cannot remember how it got here or how long ago, but it is going down nicely with ginger ale lime and crushed ice on a balmy evening here in Cleveleys. I hope you feel better soon.

Re: Man Flu

The McCallans has won the day, excellent choice KK , but the problem doesn't end there, The only lemon we have was our last one off our own tree, with a face like thunder she sliced and squeezed it into my beaker, along with a tea spoon of honey, yep a tea spoon ! not only have we run out of lemons we have also run out of honey. I can only hope this debilatating illness eases by the morrow
Sleepy I was recently in receipt of your charity when you found me thirsty and wandering the pavements of Yalikavak, for which I was eternally grateful. But is there any chance of a bag of lemons next time ?

Re: Man Flu

Of course as many as you need , but i am shocked and appalled the subsistence levels that you are having to endure.
No lemons in the house and a rationing of honey I am speechless, the men of the shebeen are in tears at your plight.
Has that woman no conscience,shocking, truly shocking.

Re: Man Flu

Personally I think you shuold line them all up and try each one in turn, and just in case after the first bout the preferred blend is not so obvious then try moving them around just in case one stifled the true taste of another, then try all of them again, this should be done until you are happy you have found either the right formula, the bets taste or just sl sloshed you couldn't care less.

and if that doesn't do the trick then the thought of a visit to the local should soon pull you round.

Re: Man Flu

30 years of marriage, yes 30 years of marriage we just celebrated ! I know your thinking I don't look old enough, I lied about my age at the signing the book thingy, but less of that, We also ran out of sweet pickled beetroot and silverskin onions tonight, when I complained she fired up the hoover and drowned out the sound of emmerdale. as she is swanning about some place called London tomorrow, I will force my bones into my bathchair and do the right thing, I will go shopping to Aldi.

Re: Man Flu

There's no but for this predicament. A flight to Bodrum to get some Turkish honey and Lemons, and some duty free Whisky.

Aldi are still open Martin 3 Lemons for 69p today

Turkish are best, but when in need.

Re: Man Flu

Oldfogy, we don't have a local pub, just a Chinese that sells fine ales, mmmmmm !
Lesley my impending trip to Yalikavak is 3 weeks away yet, and aldi is a bus ride away sadly, so it's make do and mend time, I've got some Bacardi 150 that might help with little gargle.
