It was free, but I couldn't drink it
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Hey, it"s a recession, and I was hurting the other week (not like I"m hurting now). I was down to my last couple of bottles of wine, two bottles which I didn"t want to dip into because they were for someone else, and a friend left me a big bottle of Yellowtail Chardonnay.
Not the reserve release mind you, but the regular stuff. Well, I held off for days, but then had a need so I tried a glass. Bad move. I have had crappy wines before, but this was a big bottle of crap. I couldn"t even get through a half glass of it. Needless to say, the bottle went to the porcelain goddess, but not after going through me.
Well, I don"t allow bootleg movies into my house, and I don"t bootleg music either. But now, I am going to have to put a list of wines at the front door that folks can"t cross the threshold with. Call me a snob, but there are definitely some things that I have to say no to, free or not.
