Southern Extraction

Shelby County, Tenn., sheriff’s deputies were called to check a woman slumped over the wheel of her car in front of a school. Kelly Moss, 48, was parked across the sidewalk, and arrested for driving under the influence. But she probably had better breath than the average drunk driver: a deputy said her drink of choice seems to be vanilla extract. There were several bottles of the stuff in her car (it’s 35 percent alcohol), and she smelled strongly of vanilla. It was her third DUI arrest. (RC/Memphis Commercial Appeal) ...You’d think a southern girl would prefer mint extract.
