Come quickly: I am tasting the stars.

This New Year's Eve I'm rereading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. 

I just got to the champagne part…

A sturdy young waiter with wavy blond hair appeared. He was maybe even taller than Augustus. "Do you know," he asked in a delicious accent, "what Dom Pérignon said after inventing champagne?"
"No?" I said.
"He called out to his fellow monks, 'Come quickly: I am tasting the stars.'"

Have a happy new year! 
Best wishes "tasting the stars" 


  1. mmmmm… i wonder if cold duck stars taste as delicious?

  2. Oh I love tasting the stars, I will now always think that "I'm tasting the stars" :-)
