From Toufic Ashkar, Houston

To Daniel Hazim, Atlanta,  28th  April 1999.


Dear Daniel,

While visiting you in Atlanta, Moussa Moussa (son of Anwar Moussa)  was walking around admiring your liquor store.  Suddenly, he saw something that he thought he must warn you about in order for you not to loose customers. So he called you aside all concerned and whispering in your ear so that no customer can hear what he is about to tell you.  He then said “Daniel, be careful you have many bottles that have worms in them and that is not good for your store’s reputation.”  He said that he felt so dumb when you laughed and told him that these bottle are Tequila bottles and are more valuable because of the worms inside.

Moussa still gets a good laugh out of this incident. I sure did.
