On the Horizon: A Citizen of France
WHISKEY? No, don’t try the whiskey here. This is just a small place, there is seldom anyone comes here who would want a good whiskey. A cognac, perhaps. No? Well, I must think. I am sure you have had Calvados: that is the first thing an American does in France: he goes to a bar and orders Calvados. And always he is disappointed, but always…. Ah. I know. Try an anise pure. All right? Deux, Louis. You see, they know me here. Everyone in Marseilles knows Georgie. And in Nice and Cannes and Antibes. Well, to your good health.
How do you like it? Not bad, is it? No, no, I will pay. Please, no argument. I am always glad to meet an American, and my brother here tells me that you have been very kind.
