I went to the solicitor's today to sort out my mother's estate. I then walked back to Waitrose to have a free coffee with my wife. I got my writing pad out but played an iPad game instead. Then my wife rang up to say she wasn't coming for a coffee! It tasted better than yesterday because they gave me one shot instead of two.
One shot instead of two, sounds like a hunter who hit with the first barrel of his shotgun.
