Nice to have you back. I'm sorry though, I'm not familiar with no. 12. Is this a cocktail? If you know the ingredients, I could mix you one.

Hi embassies I would like to show you something.

My man is referring to a brand of whiskey, turns out. I'm sure a Tullamore Dew or a Kilbeggan would suit just fine.
