    Default "Bitte ein Bit" (CTG)





    "Bitte ein Bit"

    I have not savored Bitburger Pilsner for twenty years,
    since those boozy nights on the garden terrace
    in Recklinghausen, playing hands of canasta

    with Uncle Douglas and his girlfriend Ilse,
    both in their seventies, their love long hidden
    while married to others, their passions rationed:

    Uncle Douglas, the milquetoast British government clerk,
    an aging Don Juan in Harris tweed. As we play, we listen
    to my cassette recordings of Baltimore classical radio:

    Arthur Honneger's "Pastorale d'été" and Kurt Weill's
    brassy "Threepenny Opera" -- but the lovebirds much prefer
    to giggle at their tape of puffins emitting farting noises,
    and to gleefully swing limbs to hoof "The Chicken Dance."

    Just looked in on this ex-pat thread, and right away bump into Bitburger. I drink a few cans every week, as it is available in our BC govt'
    liquor stores. I don't neglect the others, either.

    President Reagan probably had a sup of it also.
