the wine not the musical...
ok, so i've been in this dilemma about drinking red wine for good health, right??? i mentioned a few posts back that i had quite a collection "aging" because i was not really very fond of the red stuff.
shannon suggested that i try something sweet and chill it. well, i also mentioned that i bought a couple of bottles of "OLIVER" at the recommendation of a guy in rite aid... he said it was sweet, that his wife really liked it, and that it had all the antioxidants in it required to be labelled "good for me".
finally, i decided to try it. hence, i put it in the fridge to get it cold and invited my brother over for dinner and wine (as john is not a wine person)... after dinner we kicked back and were trying to decide what movie we were going to watch; and i asked oj if i could pour him a glass.
"sure," he replied.
so, i uncorked the bottle and poured us a glass. it smelled really good, very sweet... so far, so good.
i handed him his glass and walked over with mine to the couch. we took a drink at the same time. lol, i think we both had the same look on our faces, respectively. it was sooooooooooooooo sweet; it tasted like it was rotting my teeth!!! no, kidding... it tasted like liquid, welch's grape jelly: it didn't taste like vinegar, though. i thought i was going to hurl:C
then, i think i said something like, "maybe it would be better if we ate something really salty with it???" i took another drink as did oj as i thought maybe it had tasted so funky because i was expecting 'vinegar'. but, no, it tasted the same.
being the sister i am, i told oj we needed to "kill the glass" (the wine was not cheap...) thus, we did as we both held our noses!!! you'd think we were little kids;)
(oj through the bottom of my empty glass)
since i was on a mission; i went back into the kitchen and opened another bottle. i don't even know what label it was??? poured two glasses and took a drink of mine...
VINEGAR!!! GAG ME WITH A CORK-SCREW!!!
but, i drank that glass, too... thinking at some point i was going to "acquire the taste"... it didn't happen that night; but i did have a great time kickin' it with oj listening to a little nouvelle vague;D
i love trying some new things.
i love wine glasses; they are so pretty...
i love kickin' it with my brother.
