For Jon and Liz
Not famed throughout the Kingdom for my spatial
awareness, when you asked, “How many bottles
d’you think could fit inside this tank of wine?”
I made great play of estimating length
and height of tank, and even asked if I
could climb atop said tank to carry out
some calculations (spurious, of course)
before I plucked, quite randomly, the figure
of twenty-thousand bottles. Sorry that
I didn’t give you cause to laugh at my
numerical ineptitude, but how
was I to know my guess would be spot on?
