So the fruit flies appear out of nowhere. As a conscientious soul, you eliminate all fruit on the brink of squishy. Then the fruit flies migrate to your wine glass. Now I am not one to look down on a little protein with my wine, but I prefer it to come in the form of cashews or maybe some soft, spreadable cheese. My mother in law thought she had a fruit fly problem some years back. She kept swatting at them for days! She got rid of all the fruit, and still – she just couldn’t get rid of them. Turned out her retina had detached from her eye. So the next time you swat at the air – first get confirmation from a friend or family member that you are both seeing the same thing!
Short pours – UGH! JUST FILL MY GLASS, PLEASE! If you want to charge me more for it, then so be it! But fill the darn glass!
On a more positive note, I am enjoying a (short pour – have plans later) Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay. The wine has “notes of apple and toasty graham”, which happens to go beautifully with a chocolate chip cookie! Again, Lisa inspires! Mine is a store bought cookie – I will have to be patient and wait for the real thing from Lisa!
