Havamal Snippets 17: Drink in Moderation

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
17. A fool gapes
when to a house he comes,
to himself mutters or is silent;
but all at once,
if he gets drink,
then is the man’s mind displayed. 
Advice for those who aren't the brightest bulbs in the box (or indeed the bright bulbs who are having an off day): drink non-alcoholic beverages otherwise you are at risk of exposing your mind.
