Winos make me thirsty

26 Feb

In an effort to expand my blog-reading, I have been trying to stumble into people with a more like-minded blog: Wine drinkers. All it’s making me want to do is go to the store and get ten bottles of red wine and just down them all. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading about what my fellow winos are up to and their thoughts, but it’s enough to driveΒ this wino to drink….where’s the donate button to get me some wine?!

    I must admit I have to hang my head in shame as it seems my tastebuds have a case of arrested adolescence. I’m probably the only person my age who brings a bottle of coke to dinner parties because I just don’t like the taste of wine and doing shots of bourbon isn’t usually well looked on at the dinner table. sigh … my endless road to advancing my emotional growth … it appears I still have far to go. 😦

      Honestly, I wasn’t a big wine drinker until I got into cheese. The funny thing is that I didn’t like cheese much either, unless it was smothering something with its melted goodness. However, I was once presented with a bottle of red and a few different chunks of fancy really stinky cheese. I was told to place a little bit of cheese on the center of my tongue and take a small sip of wine. The combination of the two was bliss! After that I’ve been a lover of both, together and separate.
      Besides, you’re probably the wise one, your liver I’m sure thanks you πŸ™‚

        My liver yes – but goddess only knows what all that caffeine and sugar is doing to the rest of me.

        Wine’s my front, but at heart I’m a gin girl. I bring gin with me most places – I call it Gin-jar. I mix it with cranberry juice (the good stuff, not Ocean Spray or any other faux stuff) because I feel sorry for my kidneys, and tonic water to trick my body into thinking I’m hydrating it. Silly body.
        The sweetness of the gin and the tonic goes a long way and dare I say it, might be slightly healthier than soda? It’s a bold statement that is more than likely not true. ha ha! πŸ™‚

        My very first drink at a bar was a G&T. My friend and I went with her older sister and we didn’t expect to get in especially me – I looked 12 but it was the Gold Coast and it was the 80’s so suddenly there I was. I ordered it because it was one I had heard of in a movie. Sad to say it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship – we were good friends G and I until a boyfriend introduced me to Southern Comfort and poor G was left behind. πŸ™‚

      Ha ha! Plenty of restraint! I just hadn’t been able to make it into town to pick up any wine in a week. I began doing some extra reading on it, and I got myself a hankering πŸ™‚
