A funny little drinking quandary 

It's funny that my old roommate, Debbie, a few years ago, had not touched a drop 
of alcohol for years - due to a funny little drinking problem she had  - and 
then one day she found herself at a wedding reception tempted by the devil, with 
a crystal glass of celebratory champagne  en-clasped in her tiny hand, of which 
she did partake of a weensy sip ,  and then soon-after proceeded to ask me if I 
thought she had sinned in some small way. 
 
You should have seen the stunned look on her face, when I broke her the hard news that 
the morning orange juice she's been sucking down the last ten years has always been at least one-percent good alcohol.
