March 26th…….

English novelist Arnold Bennett died trying to impress his girlfriend. When a Parisian waiter advised him against drinking the café’s toxic tap water, Bennett took a sip to show his lady companion that he wasn’t afraid of a little bacteria. “Ah, ce n’est pas sage, Monsieur, ce n’est pas sage!” the waiter protested—“Ah, this is not wise, sir, this is not wise!”

The bold Bennett then developed typhoid and died on March 26, 1931, shortly after returning from Paris.
