I foresee a few issues that should make this an interesting evening. First, if everyone brings a bottle of wine, and every bottle of wine is opened, the potential for everyone getting a bit tipsy is high. Who wants to see all of that wine go to waste? The Democrats have won! Let’s celebrate! Mmmm… Yummy pinot. We ain’t drinking the fucking merlot.
Second, if a lot of people show up, and if everyone tastes everything (there ain’t going to be a lot of spitting, as we ain’t that sophisticated), the person who uncorks the last bottle is going to win, even if he or she brought plonk.
This is my bottle.
At $14, it’s a decent bottle of pinot
that stands a chance of winning.
Still, I’m going last.
Third, I have to work in the morning and deal with people all day long. The company that owns the company I work for has a warehouse sale every couple of months. Just to spite us, I think, they make us work the sale. I will be standing up all day long tomorrow, and I will be required to be nice to people. I should be responsible and take it easy, but I was reasonably responsible last weekend, and I was rewarded with the worst head cold I’ve had in ages. So screw that idea.
Wish me luck. If all goes well, I will wake up on someone’s couch $30 richer and late for work due to a splitting hangover.
