Waiting room columns

During the chilling desert nights, we keep ourselves warm with Vintage Glen Spey, Interleven, and Single Grain Lochnagar.  During the flaying heat of the day, we keep cool with Vintage Glenlossie, Ardbeg and Duff’s Defiance Founders Reserve.  To conserve supplies, during twilight, we stick to Juan’s Special Reserve.  However, the harsh climate of the desert means that our supplies are rapidly diminishing and, with our train covinously behind schedule, we continue to design a much-needed, commodious, waiting room. 

Juan insists on Corinthian columns, but I think they are too stern for a waiting room and recommend Ionian columns.  After a long brawl, we decide to compromise and use Doric columns; to celebrate settling the argument, and looking forward to seeing our beautifully columned waiting room, when it’s built, we break open barrels of Vintage Bladnoch, Knockdhu and Glenturret Private Reserve and, after drinking toast after toast to all Greek architects, and saluting everyone who appreciates a well designed waiting room, we pudder around in confusion, as fast as we possibly can.
