French Toast

I once heard someone say that the tradition of drinking “á votre santé,” to your health, dates back to the days when it was considered a courtly gesture for a gentleman to drink from a lady’s shoe. Apparently drinking to her health was an acknowledgement of the risk he was taking – if she had any funky foot diseases, he’d be drinking major cooties, so before he took a swig, he hoped she was healthy.

I sure hope that’s apocryphal. Because, ew.
