Come to your senses, Damaris.  By now Gunnora has to have developed some 
immunity to the stuff; at least enough to be able to peg you between the 
eyes with a carved faux-ivory neftafl piece before she can't tell which 
of the three of you she's seeing is the real one.

Besides, Gunnora drunk on the field might be a spectacle the kingdom 
isn't ready for.  Heavens, she might get hold of a tamborine!  The end of 
civilization might ensue.
