Dear Short Answers:
I had a party at my house last Saturday and a friend brought over non-alcoholic wine so that he could drink it at the party. I completely forgot about this and served him real wine by mistake. Of course, he got roaring drunk, embarrassed himself and is furious at me. He was alcohol-free for over 10 years before that night. What can I do to make it up to him? It was truly an honest mistake.
One would think that a person who has been off the sauce for 10 years would have noticed an unfamiliar (or perhaps too familiar) effect before he got roaring. But let’s give him the benefit of the doubt. Apologize, and send him a case of his non-alcoholic wine.
