Trivia 297

 

 

 

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

 

Drinking to one’s health was a term brought about from Greece.  In olden times the waiter would take the first sip of wine to insure it wasn’t poisoned.  When Romans continued they called it “toasting” why you may ask?  Well I’m glad you did they (Romans) would drop a piece of toasted bread into the wine to temper undesirable tastes. 

 

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

You have to wonder how much the waiter was paid to have that really bad job? Also, I wonder if the toast left crumbs in the wine? So many questions.
