Washington, Nov 5 (ANI): Former US President George W. Bush has revealed that his worst drunken moment happened at his parents’ dinner table in Maine, in front of a hot, old woman.

“So I’m drunk at the dinner table at Mother and Dad’s house in Maine. And my brothers and sister are there, Laura’s there. And I’m sitting next to a beautiful woman, friend of Mother and Dad’s,” People magazine quoted Bush as telling Matt Lauer in an interview to promote his new memoir ‘Decision Points’.

“And I said to her out loud, ‘What is sex like after 50?’ After that, one could hear a pin drop. It was total silence. And not only silence, but like serious daggers from my mom and my wife,” he added.

Bush said he later apologized to the woman. But she got the last laugh - because when he was the governor of Texas, she sent him a letter reading: “Dear Governor, Well, what’s the answer?”

The politician-turned-author said he was never a ‘knee-walkin’ drunk’.

“I could easily have a beer or two, or a martini before dinner, bourbons, B&B’s. I was a drinker,” he said.

Bush said he quit the habit the day after his 40th birthday in 1986, and hasn’t fallen off the wagon since. (ANI)
