She wasn't trying to make a moral judgement, but she was alone, my bottles were in plain sight, and she was tempted with no one to call for support...and did what she had to do to maintain her sobriety.
She was very upset afterwards and offered to replace them for me, but I refused the offer. I would rather she have done what she did that have my daughters see her in a stupor on the couch when they got home from school...and have her feel guilty about it for years to come.

Mr. Picky is fairly shy in public. Anyway, the fellow had committed no overt grammatical offense, nor said anything demonstrably false, which are the kinds of things about which Mr. Picky really cares. Perhaps, like Harry, he'd have pointed out the fallaciousness of the fellow's steak metaphor. Mr. Picky loves a good metaphor, and, like Lenny in Of Mice And Men, will stroke one until it's dead, and beyond. But most likely, he'd simply have bought his Laphroaig and got out. (Or he might have been tempted, on leaving, to ask, "Say, do you know where there's a good charcoal restaurant around here?")
