My brother lives in wine country, in California. Tough life, it’s so amazingly beautiful there. Anyway, so I tend to dial him up when I am in the wine store, trying to decide what on earth to buy. Good lord, there is a range of wine in those stores. Whatever should I choose? Go with the cheap? Go with the expensive? Go with the local (to my brothers’ house) and hope for the best?
I got some potentially obnoxious news today, and I prefer to dull the pain of the not knowing with wine. Chardonnay specifically. Sue me. The news of what is, or isn’t, will reveal itself tomorrow, and I shall deal with it then. Until then, I shall enjoy my ridiculously expensive Chardonnay. (Did I mention that it was e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e yet? egads. There goes the budget. ooOOooooh well.
I WILL absolutely enjoy myself for one last day, before the level of what I have to do vs. what I want to do is listed out for me by other people. Yes, I will.
For the record, the cheap stuff is generally just as delicious as the really expensive stuff. Need a recommendation? go with what is on sale.
Yeah, it’s like that. I am pretty bossy, but trust me on this, unless it’s an amazing celebration occasion– go with the cheaper stuff. It’s not that different for the price.
HOWEVER. This is a special occasion. One that requires special attention (to ME) and perhaps some level of “good” over “whatever” that I usually employ when making my final choices at the wine store.
Cheers. … and good luck with that.
