Practical Solution

Young John was noted in the village and beyond as a staunch and rabid tee-totaller. To the genuine surprise of his parents - who were equally strict where 'drink' was concerned - he had announced his engagement to a young lady who had recently succeeded to a thriving public house.

But young John faced a problem. He explained to his father that he would be required to live in the business premises and had as 'mine host' to join his customers in an occasional friendly drink. Here was a dilemma - and what did his father think?
John senior nodded slowly and promised to give the problem careful thought. The next day he announced that he had seen the light.
    "Weill John" he said "yir mither an me kin see whit a sair temptation it wull be wi sae muckle drink aboot. Bit we baith ken fine that business is business an we see nae hairm in yir haen a bittie drink whiles wi the customers - as lang as ye dinna enjoy it!"
