We Didn’t Die!! And Earth’s Still Here. Whew.
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?
