I really dislike wine. I hate it enough that I can't even pretend to be trendy and get on that wine bandwagon.
One of my friends in Booze Bay kept a couple of beers around for when I came over. She couldn't stand to watch me mix water or juice with the glass of wine she poured for me. The last time I drank wine in any quantity I found out that Merlot stains EVERYTHING when you barf it back up. Another friend up the river has a permanent (small) red spot on her grout from this experience that I had there. Of course, it probably is not so hot of an idea to drink some beers, a couple of everclear shots and THEN a glass of Merlot... but when has that ever stopped me.
If I'm already buzzed, I can enjoy a chardonnay or two. Bottles that is.
I took a local friend shopping not too long ago. He enjoys wine. We were in the wine aisle and he was trying to decide which box o'wine he ought to purchase. He was dissing one kind over another. I had to laugh. I told him it was like watching someone try to decide if they ought to buy Milkwaukee's Beast or Pabst. They both suck. Shut your eyes and pick, right?
