I realize that it's a bit tacky to drink Glenlivet from a glass labeled "Johnnie Walker" but is it, technically speaking, an actual crime?
A little background here... Last year I got a gift set of Johnnie Walker which came with two very nice glasses. This year I bought meself a gift set of Glenlivet, which was packaged with sample bottles of the 15 year old and the 18 year old, but no glasses. Later I bought my lady another set which had no samplers, but did include two very nice glasses. It turns out now that the set with glasses is only available at a store near her, and the set with samplers is only available at a store near me, and she wants the samplers. So we each bought a set for the other, which we intend to swap this weekend, giving us both nice glasses and samples of the finer versions of this fine concoction. But in the meantime, she's already cracked open my bottle at her house of the 12 year old, yet here I sit, having just put up a bunch of Christmas lights and craving a glass of the good stuff, but lacking a decent glass to pour it in! The Johnnie Walker glass is the best in the house, so to speak, until I can fetch my Glenlivet glasses from her house on Sunday.
Is there hope that I might be forgiven this transgression, under the circumstances? Or can I expect the Scotch police to come knocking in the wee hours and cart me off to some dark nether place where they serve only bourbon?Suspicious | :suss:
