In vino veritas – the Drinking Man's Diary's friend

We all know that Kentucky is the Classics expert. The Consul has some learning of course, but when it comes to the Classics, Kentucky is always our man. When he first uttered the phrase to me “In vino veritas” I knew these were important words. Maybe not as defining as “Are you looking at me?” but still big words. Over the years I have come to deeply appreciate the importance of these words and although I try to be honest in all my adventures, nothing quite brings out the truth like a good bottle of wine or in my case beer. In fact I distrust those people who say to me “No, I never get drunk.” Not ever? My question is always “What have you got to hide?” This is why I find myself entering the truth late on a Friday night after the truth serum has begun to work.
