Grape Soup for the Sol
Exuberant. Versatile. Complex. But enough about me.
When I come to one of the forks in the road of life, I don’t waste time and energy wishing it was a spoon. I just keep in mind ten little letters and one little punctuation mark: WWCdSNVRWD?
Asking myself “What would Costa del Sol Napa Valley Red Wine do?” really helps clarify the issue and point toward the proper course of action. Let’s say the 2005 Costa del Sol Napa Valley Red Wine witnessed one of its fellow wines sneaking office supplies from the company. WWCdSNVRWD? Well, by its very nature as a blend, it seeks harmony. So it would probably attempt to keep the peace by approaching the offending wine and offering to stay quiet about the theft in return for a cut of the take. That’s what I did. Harmony reigns in the office, and I haven’t bought a Post-It note since.
Say it’s something more mundane, like where to take a first date for dinner. Since the versatile 2005 Costa del Sol Napa Valley Red Wine pairs well with anything from pizza to burgers to pork chops to German chocolate cake, it would go somewhere that offered all of those things. So I naturally take my first dates to a cafeteria. Does it work? Well, I’ve had several dozen first dates in the past year, so I must be doing something right.
Some people might say following the WWCdSNVRWD? system has turned me into a petty criminal who’s incapable of attracting a long-term girlfriend. But I know my life is richer, brighter, more intense, and more flavorful thanks to the 2005 Costa del Sol Napa Valley Red Wine. Hey, which do you think is a better gift for a woman I’ve got a crush on: a 6-pack of glue sticks or a three-hole punch?
