Never trust your wife's martinis


Sure, they look ordinary martinis, but they’re mostly gin, and three times as large as a normal martini. I’ve always lived by the Dorothy Parker rule of thumb:

I like to have a martini
Two at the very most
Three, I’m under the table;
Four, I’m under the host.
 Do not trust this rule-of-thumb when your wife is mixing the martinis!
