Happy National Grand Marnier Day

grand marnier

I Googled Steve Martin + Grand Marnier and this photo came up on the first page. Can anyone explain that to me?

One of my favorite memories is of me and my husband on our honeymoon in Paris. Having finised our meal, Bill wanted some Grand Marnier. He tried to order it about 10 times and the waiter indicated the he didn’t understand what Bill was saying. When Bill pointed to the bottle, the waiter exclaimed “Oh, Gra-a-a-a-ahn-n-n Mawne-e-e-e-ay!” with disdain and an eye roll for the annoying American tourists. He gave Bill a sip, charged us for the entire bottle, and we left. I still imagine Steve Martin doing an impersonation of the waiter. Makes me laugh every time.
