It’s been one of those weeks. You know the kind. The weekend was too short, Monday seemed twice as long as usual, and the office just seemed like one of those weird traveling Carnival fun houses…the kind you end up in during a movie where you’re running away from the pyscho undead serial killer whose slow, yet never wavering pace will always catch up to you because you end up making some stupid left turn into a fully operating Carney park in the middle of nowhere; sans Carnies, yet still running, and of all the places you choose to run, you pick a f*cking fun house…with the janky mirrors and false exits and oh shit you’re dead because you’re an idiot. You CrossFit…your cardio is better than the serial killer guy’s….that’s why you CrossFit….so you can outrun pyscho undead serial killers. Just keep running, you moron.
Yes…one of those weeks.
Anyway…we needed to stop at Costco on the way home to restock our cupboards. We had family visiting for about two weeks and while we’d planned well for when they were here, we didn’t really plan a resupply run after their departure. Thus the trip to Toys-R-Us-For-Grownups a.k.a. Costco.
We realized our ‘everyday drinking wine’ supply had run rather low after
the freeloaders, the pack of rabid, alcoholic dogs, our family had departed and Costco has a lot of things…including wine.
Let me make a few things clear before I post the picture:
Yes, we live 40 minutes from Napa.
Yes, we’ve had some FABULOUS wines since moving out here to the Bay area.
Yes, we know that a $6 bottle has nothing on a $40 bottle has nothing on a $100+ bottle.
No, we cannot afford to drink $100+ bottles of wine very often…hell not even $30 bottles THAT often.
Yes, we are equal opportunity winos.
Drum roll, please:
No, the box isn’t there to fool you. We really DID buy a case of Blackstone merlot. Like I said, it’s been a long week, don’t judge, and yes we most certainly are drinking f*cking Merlot.
