You know what else is known to soothe pain?

Ice.

A glass of wine is always half-full.

Oh, please. I go home to NYC from Spain and the wines I pay 5€ in Madrid retail (which would cost 11€ in a Spanish restaurant) I see on NY restaurant wines list for $45. I know booze gets a big markup and the Yoo-was (formerly the Euro) is high, but jeezus.

Wine? Ugh.

Now cheaper Belgian beer, that is a cause for good cheer.
