An extravagantly wrapped package that makes you dread tearing off the paper.
A fabulous pair of wedges that seem like they were made to go with your favorite maxi dress.
A corkscrew brandished tableside to open the perfect bottle of vino.
I join my guests at the dinner table and dramatically remove a corkscrew from my collection.
I listen to the oohs and ahhs from my guests who are dazzled by my mouth-watering culinary skills, over the top table setting, abundance of exotic flowers clustered in milk glass …
until I realize that the guest of honor brought her favorite bottle of wine to share …
with a screw cap!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m an equal opportunity wine drinker
and I don’t discriminate against screw caps but
somehow my vision of the perfect dinner party didn’t involve me turning a screw.
I mean, where’s the ceremony in that?
I’ll console myself with a big pour of that Fat bastard.
Cheers, Salud, Cin Cin, Bottoms Up!
However you say it, make it a moment to remember.
