There’s many reasons to raise a glass of champagne.
A diamond from Tiffany’s.
A published book.
Sunset over the Aegean
Pasta made successfully.
A phone call from the past.
No reason at all. Just because.
I originally wrote this post with “ten reasons to drink bubbly”. How limiting! I am in Paris wandering through a museum-art gallery day with Theadora of PEOPLE, PLACES AND BLING. Her blog on Paris in August is Paris in love. Museums to check out. Art Galleries to see and be seen
The day will end sipping champagne with Tinny at a table at Le Procope on a quiet part of St. Germain des Pres. There will be three icy cold glasses on table. The third glass has Theadora’s name on it.
Now here are the original ten reasons to drink champagne:
“Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it” – Madame de Pompadour.
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content and sufficient champagne” – Dorothy Parker
“You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much champagne in your refrigerator” – Virginia B.
“As symbols go, champagne is extraordinarily powerful. It makes you feel like it’s Sunday and better days are just around the corner” – Marlene Dietrich
One night at The Ritz, Tallulah Bankhead drank champagne from her own slipper. Another good reason not to wear open toe shoes. Virginia B.
There are about 250 million bubbles in a bottle of champagne. Take a flute of champagne into your bath and double your fun. Take your partner into the bath and the sky’s the limit. Virginia B.
“Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector:”- Graham Greene
Never tamper with a good bottle of Champagne. It’s indecent to even think of Kir Royale or black velvet. Virginia B.
Drink good champagne, and only good champagne. Drink it morning, noon or night and you’ll never have a hangover. Virginia B.
