The peculiarity of the order was beginning to get the attention of the people at the bar. They wondered if there was a particular reason for the two drops of water.
While one group argued that the lady was trying to water down her drink, others thought it was a case of old age. The bartender decided to find out on their behalf.

As he served the woman her drink, he offered her a kind smile before asking why she asked for two drops of water with her scotch.
The lady giggled; then staring at the bartender with eyes full of wisdom, she said:
"Sonny, by the time you get to my age, you would have learned to hold your liquor. Water, on the other hand, is a whole other issue."
