"..diplomacy par excellence!"

I saw a slightly different diplomacy once...I also like good Irish

Many years ago, before I learned about good Scotch I was in Los Angeles, Cal, for a meeting, and after the meeting a group of us went to a 'daylight' bar in this fancy hotel..(wide open, lighted...lots of potted plants)...and up comes this waiter in a red jacket..a distinguished fellow with white hair and an English accent....and enquires what we would like to drink.."Ahh.." says I, "I don't suppose you have Irish?"..

"Well, not really, " replies the VEDDY formal fellow, with a slight twinkle in his eye..."..we have Bushmills.."

so I grinned at him and ordered a brandy....
