A short lead in – For all the non-medical people Bailey and Love is a Surgery Textbook.
I sit alone in my carton smelling of cardboard and alcohol. The smell is tolerable but the hurt stems from the loneliness. Alcohol bottles as you can imagine keep quite to themselves. It’s part of our packaging as you know. I am a rare breed of alcohol; I come from a long Irish lineage of alcoholic creams. You may say I’m a ‘crème-de-la-crème’. After years of processing, purifying, blending and mixing I was corked into this claustrophobic bottle and branded Bailey’s Fine Irish Cream. But that was all in the past.
