Spit or Swallow?

Jonathan's short monologue was performed and directed by Jennifer Oliver at The Space as part of The One Festival in January 2017.



“Do you spit or swallow?”  Nigel asked me last night.


I answered truthfully: “I’m not sure. I’ve never done this before. Which would you recommend?”


“Since it’s your first time,” he said, “You might as well enjoy it.  Roll it slowly around in your mouth to really get the taste of it.  Explore the texture with your tongue.” He looked me directly in the eye. “Then swallow.”


You see, that’s exactly why I joined the wine group – to learn!
