The Apocalypse!What a boring apocalypse.  While there was a part of me that was expecting explosions, Zombie invasions, or alien takeovers, it was an amazingly quiet day.  I’m just glad I didn’t take a vacation day off in order to assume a fetal position, drink something expensive, and await the final foretold cataclysm.  What a waste that would have been!

My original plan was to carefully track how the end of the world was happening, time zone by time zone.  Well, when Australia survived, I figured the rest of us had nothing to worry about.

I have a bottle of Kosta Browne Pinot Noir that I paid a lot of money for (for me, at least), and is now worth about $160.00.  That was going to be my end-of-the-world wine.  However, as the end of the world creeped ever closer, my skepticism rose ever higher.  So instead of popping the cork on a wine that should wait at least another y ear, I decided on an inexpensive wine that still tasted good.  I don’t remember what it was, but I didn’t care.  I enjoyed it.

My wines were far more important than the end of the world.  And I feel so vindicated!  The world is still here, and so am I and my “good” wines.  This is a good thing.

So what did you drink?  Were you waiting for the Apocalypse? Or were you, like me, using it as an excuse to enjoy a bottle of wine?
