A Very Merry Chase Six Sentence Sunday Excerpt

     "And that I did. How was I supposed to know that she would toss the brandy off in one gulp instead of taking a few ladylike sips? She sure doesn't seem like the type to tipple, but I swear I've never seen a portion of brew go down so fast in all my born days."
     "Just how much laudanum did you lace it with?"
