WHAT MADE SUSAN SONTAG SMILE?


She was a bit grumpy most of her life and would have made a good partner for the grumpy old man.
Most photographs of her show her looking rather grim.
This one (albeit at a much younger age) shows her smiling. It must have been the Chardonnay.

"Give me a chardonnay because I like them woody." Is she talking to Woody Allen?

I think she was being quite vulgar myself

Let's assume for a minute that she was being vulgar.
"Give me a chardonnay because I like them woody." should read:
"Give me a chardonnay and I like them woody."
or
"Give me a chardonnay; by the way, I like them woody."
or
"Chardonnay seems to give blokes erections. Give him a chardonnay because I like them woody."
