A History Lesson

Wine this good should have textbooks written about it!

"Hey! I got this Thomas Alexander wine for tonight."

Thomas Alexander!? THE Thomas Alexander?

"Uh, yes. It's a 2010 Paso Robles Rhone Blend."

It doesn't matter what it is. I'm sure it'll be good. After all, we're talking about THE Thomas Alexander. The same guy who invented the lightbulb, right?

"What? No. That was Thomas Edison."

Oh, sorry. I meant the telephone. Not the lightbulb. Silly me.

"Huh? That was Alexander Graham Bell."

Really? I thought Thomas Alexander invented something.

"No... well, he did invent this Le Tigre wine, so I guess that counts for something."

Was he president?

"Huh?"

Yeah! He was the 3rd president, wasn't he?

"You mean Thomas Jefferson."

What? Oh, shoot. Not a president. A Secretary of the Treasury! Yeah! The first one?

"No, that was Alexander Hamilton."

Really? No, that doesn't make sense. Really? Are you sure?

"Yes."

Then who is Thomas Alexander?

"He's a winemaker. He made this wine."

Hmm. I guess that makes sense.

"Yes. It makes a lot of sense. Anyway, you want some?"

Yeah, sure.
