This is one for the record books, hence me recording it.

I just bought this wine, this vintage, this everything for...

wait for it...

....


...wait for it..... $23.99 per bottle. I bought every single bottle they had. Did I feel like correcting their pricing? No. Do I feel the slightest bit guilty? Absolutely not. One woman was holding a bottle from 1999 in her mitts because "the label was pretty" and I almost leg wrassled her to the ground to wrench it away from her. I think I showed extraordinary restraint, all things considered.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Guess what we're popping open if I sell my book? DUDE. I thought I was high tone drinking the 2004 vintage. LIFE IS FINE, MY FRIENDS.

Oh wow!! I clicked the link and just *blinked* at the price of that stuff.

That's an awesome find. Hell, I'd have bought them out too and I don't even drink wine.

I keep replaying that Monty Python skit with the two old ladies talking about how the one bought a piston engine because it was a bargain. :D

I think the same buyer has Ft. Worth in their range? If so, World Market, if you can believe that. I called around to all the shops in the burbs and got every one that was available...

I'll admit my reaction to that scenario would be something right down the middle of my two greeds: for money and for personal pleasure. I mean, I'd have a damn hard time not selling some of those bottles off to make some serious cash.

But what a nice dilemma it would be.

(why didn't I see this earlier?) Man, that's tempting, but then I would be able to drink it for myself!

There's nothing quite like leaning against a steaming dumpster hurling up fine wine while trying to pull my pants back on.

You know what we call that in my family? MONDAY.

I just might this weekend! I feel like it needs a buildup, perhaps a silver chalice fromwhence I shall sip... :D

Where oh where, Stoney?!
Long-time lurker, first-time commenter because OH MY GOODNESS! I think I live somewhere near you (in the beautiful Hill Country). Can you tell me the name of the store? Please please please? I suppose I'd understand if you wanted to keep this little gem to yourself ... but I'd still be bitter and jealous. ;)

Re: Where oh where, Stoney?!
RUN to World Market and see if they have it! Someone left a comment earlier wondering if I bought a different vintner, so make sure it's the label I linked too.

I'm ALL about the sharing!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
