Drinking wine at a lunch meeting? You mustn't be from around here. (Ever since the Exxon Valdez, drinking on the job has been considered a bad idea here in the US.)

#28, because it is literal in this case and not figurative. "Holding your liquor" is a figure of speech meaning that you can function well when you are drunk. RPS noticed in this case that the OP failed to hold her liquor in her body by laughing explosively. Now, that I have provided an exhaustive semantic analysis of the joke, I hope you enjoy the hysterical laughter those of us who got the joke in the first place recently had.

I wouldn't honestly blame him. They were "important" people and if they end up getting splashed by wine from someone's nose, they'd probably change their minds about what they planned, thus causing a huge loss for the company.

If I was in you boss' s position I'd be a little frustrated too but I would understand that it was an accident. Hopefully your boss will be mature enough to understand.
