Pensées Nocturnes - À Boire Et À Manger

When last we left Pensées Nocturnes, I likened my experience listening to Nom D'une Pipe! to two drunks wandering home after a bender. At times happy for the company as our paths crossed. At others happy to be free of each other's idiosyncrasies as our paths diverged. Amusingly their latest, A Boire Et A Manger, translates* to "You won't lack for food or drink."
