Cheap Thought of the Day

The best cheap wine is somebody else's expensive wine.

Especially if served with a bendy straw.

Both profound and true.

I'm not a wine person though I want to be. I just can't get into it. I love the whole idea of wine and even the smell of a good red, but I can't stand the taste. I'm the only wine philistine in my family. I'd rather have a beer or some tequila.

One day we're gonna be in a pub together and we're gonna be able to say ...

"We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here, and we want them now!"

@tattytiara: don't you find the plastic of the straw can interfere with the subtleties of the flavor notes?

@Vegetable Assassin: try using a bendy straw!

@Mel: I live for the day, but...we'd better make sure it's not the sort of the place that actually stocks those wines. They will charge accordingly.

True, but by then we will be millionaires, have bought the pub, and installed a fucking jukebox.

so no need to stress the prices.

Not drunks! Multi-millionaires.

But quite right in any case, no need to sweat the pub markup on whatever vintages they might have steeping years-deep in the cool, dry reaches of their cellars.

But unlike the Penrith (sp?) Tea Room, surely any self-respecting pub already has a jukebox?

Mel said...

Yes, most do have a jukebox. And often, as well, some chump has loaded it up with AC/DC while behaving abhorrently and shooting some pool.
