Perspective, Stories from life, The world around us

Illusions

In 1987 I traveled with my soccer team from the USA to Europe to play a number of friendly matches against teams in Austria, Germany and Czechoslovakia. Most of our meals were in restaurants. From the states we were used to being served cold tap water with all of our meals. In Europe we never experienced this.

Then, when we had given up hope, after a hard morning training session, we went into the hotel restaurant for breakfast and there on the table were small glasses of water in front of each plate. Finally, someone who understood the needs of hot, sweaty soccer players. Several of us sat down, reached for our glasses and tipped the contents down our throats…… It was vodka!!!!!

Always smell your water before you drink it. Looks can be deceiving J
