I love this! EXCEPT for the egregious typographical error in 3d — passed instead of past! Which I hate to point out! But still feel like I should just because without that, this would be the best thing ever!! Ugh, I hate me for pointing it out. I do. But I’m leaving this anyway.
Also, stinker, I like both reds and whites and I am NOT a hipster!
(well, if you go back and look i say it’s TOO BAD for not liking both whites and reds, and so make fun of myself for not picking just one myself, while also claiming it’s best not to pick just one. there are so many good wines out there WHAT THE HELL.)
(but also, dear god. i KNOW that typo (writo?) is awful. i made it cause I AM ILL AND STILL DELIRIOUS FROM THIS COLD OH LORD GOD THE COLD (sympathy?), and then left it because i am embarrassing and you should be careful spending time with me… or, SOMETHING.)
love me anyway?
also, how else could i have so easily brought up the “non” category of orange wine, which i’m so enthralled by?
OH MY GOD I COULDN’T STAND IT. so i fixed it. i hope the memory of my failure doesn’t scar you FOREVER.
Looks like I’ll be getting Whiskey for Christmas!!!
April, yay Whiskey!
i’m caught in a spiral of shame; i like reds, but i do like some whites, but if i say i like both i’m a hipster, and i don’t want orange wine! i like reds! but i do like some whites! but…. *sigh*
so happy also to see that i’ll be getting seriously awesome gifts this year
oh my god, kate. i have had a couple of orange wines that will make you salivate, forget where you are, what to spend the next hour making out, and then get up and drink the same wine again. really. oh god. yum.
also, oh i like red. and oh i like white. BUT I AM NOT A HIPSTER. but i like red. but i like white.
i think the trick here is that it isn’t because we’re TOO COOL to commit. it’s that we know what’s good. and that’s why we’re getting awesome gifts this holiday.
Reblogged this on Sirena Di Vino and commented:
oh lord, hilarious! apparently, i’ll have to learn to like whiskey, which i’ll be given by all my non-wine friends 😉
