|This will be attached to my hand for the next week.|
My friend Tucker is coming down next week so when pay day rolled around this week I decided to stock up. I bought a really nice, expensive, BOX of wine (I consider $25 for the equivalent of 4 bottles to be a lot). I was so excited for Tucker coming down and to try my new Black Box Malbec that I couldn't actually open the box. Like my thumbs were not strong enough. I decided to take it out of the stoneage and use a tool. I chose a knife.
You can imagine what happened next. There was a geyser of red wine first at me, then as I spun frantically, all over my kitchen. It looked like I killed a man. I took off all my clothes and threw them in the washer, then ruined all of my and my roommate's towels picking up the mess. SORRY PAUL! I managed to get the wine sealed back up temporarily using the "reseal the bag" technique that I know you all are professionals at. However, when I went to pick the bag up again it burst.
I ended up funneling the wine into 3 bottles that Paul had laying around. PRoblem with wine is that it only lasts a week after it's been exposed to air. As of today it'll be 9 days till Tucker gets here. The wine has to be consumed. That's why this week we're having the Wine Diaries, which I hope to be more boozy and authentic than that Rum Diaries bullshit. Well, here we go.
