Death in a green bottle
Chartreuse makes you chartreuse!
That is a picture of Chartreuse up above. Here is another picture that will serve as a field guide to various types so if you see it you will be readily able to identify it and steer clear.
I do not deliver these warnings lightly. However this is the second time I have drunk Chartreuse and both times have been awful.
You do not even get the fun of drinking to excess! Just a few sips of this stuff and you are in trouble.
That is not fair. At least when you are hung over you should be able to think well, I had all that fun. This situation reminded me of what Leonard Pennario told me about a time in the Army when he pounded an evil drink. I laughed and laughed, hearing him tell that story. But when it happens to me, it is no joke!
Notice Pennario withheld that story from this interviewer.
I am not the only one to feel the ill effects of this green stuff. There is this Web log I found just now, Googling around.
The moral of the story:
Stick with wine!
