Last night my bartending classmates and I were chatting as we filled up our fake-alcohol bottles in preparation for our usual 30 minutes of high-speed drink drills at the end of class. Someone suggested that we should all have "bartending names" borrowed from the names of the liquors we're learning to mix. I was dubious, but to my surprise people started expressing enthusiasm for being called Drambuie and Curacao. Far be it from me to spoil their party.
"So, Dianna, what's your name?" I thought for a second and said, "Midori."
And that was that, and Midori is what I shall be called. But I admit I'm a little disappointed that no one asked why.Posted by dianna at December 4, 2003 03:07 PM
