IMAGINE we were living in medieval times…. and you’d been invited to a royal banquet.
The ones in charge were extremely keen to get you to drink the wine. They were very insistent. 👀
You’d probably assume the wine was poisoned.
“Drink this wonderful wine.”
“No thank you.”
“Be a good guest! Drink the wine. We uncorked it especially. It’s a beautiful and rare vintage.”
“No thank you. I appreciate the offer though.”
“Drink the wine. It’s very expensive but you can have a glass for free, and we’ll give you an extra plate of supper.”
“No I’m fine as I am.”
“Drink the wine and we’ll feed your entire village for a week and reduce your taxes.”
“Wow all that for wine? What’s in it? Still, no thank you.”
