Could it be she has Corona Virus???.
Is the Bull still selling Corona? No wonder people[1] think it's old
fashioned. I thought it was all Sch you know who these days.

Perhaps it will need a makeover.

Memories of the old advertising sign "Lucozade Aids Recovery"
which took on an unintended significance in the 80s.

(I wondered too. But would have to have been either a forward-looking
SW, or a topical rewrite [new phrase? {More than just an insert}].)

I now realise people may be thinking of a different Corona branded drink.

I don't (think I) recognised that one. Unless there's another Corona
beer, I think I was wrong about that (being served in Indian
restaurants), too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corona_%28beer%29 says
that's pale and Mexican. Ah yes, I think this is the one I was thinking
of:

But those bottles have all got the wrong caps! Corona had a sort of
flip-top cap with metal wires.

That’s the one I think of Jim, only thing is, that is far too modern for my
memories - mine is more of a ‘wooden crates on a flatbed lorry of the 50’s
and 60’s’. I don’t think the colour and branding have changed though.
