    May I See the Wine List?

    V. just sent me a voicemail from one of the nursing homes where we often see patients. The charge nurse called to give V. a test result and then added: "The patient is requesting red wine with dinner. Please call us back."

    Requesting wine with dinner, at a nursing home?

    I voicemailed her back and suggested that the staff get some grape juice and pour rubbing alcohol in it - "He won't be able to tell the difference." Hmm. Chateau Geriatrique. Sounds catchy.
