Never let your hands shake while administering Tabasco. My Bloody Mary turned out to be a Bloody Bloody Bloody Mary! Added so much Tabasco, I burnt my lips. Switched to Vodka and Sprite thereafter. Needed the cooling effect so badly, I lost count after 3 drinks. No matter, since everyone, including BH, were in high spirits as well. Two wine drinkers consumed a bottle each, a solitary beer drinker generously left 4 bottles for the kabadiwalla, and a turkey was demolished as well. Have sailed to office today on extremely choppy seas.
