In which I gag

It’s Halloween, so I pulled one of these off the shelf (the one on the left). I peeled the foil and discovered it was a screw cap, not a cork. Opened it anyway. It’s bad, but what the hell, I drink bad red wine all the time.

Then I got to the bottom of the bottle and gagged on the “solids” there. I don’t know what the hell it was, but it was grit and chunks and whoa did I come close to chunking right into my sink.

Thank you, R Wines of Eastwood, Australia and importer The Grateful Palate of Oxnard, California, for bringing some real horror to my Halloween. The slogan on your bottle (“It’s Just Wrong”) was accurate on more levels that I would ever have expected.

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
