What Happens When a Tourist Is Deaf to All Parts of Speech Except Nouns

Tourist: What is this special wine deal you have tonight?
Waitress: Well, it’s 5-dollar Italian wine night, so any wine that is made in Italy is 5 dollars. But we are out of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
Tourist: Well, I guess I’ll have a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Waitress: We’re out of that. Anything else.
Tourist: Then I’ll have a glass of Pinot Grigio.
