I may not be entitled to whine, but I'm sure entitled to wine! A few months ago on this blog, I reported that my doctor had just put me in the high risk category for a heart attack. I have quite a few risk factors, but the latest development that pushed it over the line was that my HDL took a nosedive, we don't know why. After reconfiguring my meds, my cardioligist told me to drink a glass of wine every night. Now, I don't like wine and I know nothing about it. I tasted something not too bad at church on Ash Wednesday, and my friend told me it was a sweet wine and gave me a bottle. Not good, but not horrible. Then I bought the Manischewitz, it was horrible and I poured it out. Those are the two in my first picture. The bottle I opened in March is still in the fridge, but can you drink it after it's been open four months? I don't know. My daughter-in-law likes wine, has been to wine tastings, and knows a lot about it. I asked her. She knew too much, telling me about the back of the mouth and the side of the tongue and the aftertaste till I was more confused than ever. I didn't understand a word she was saying. But she knows what I like, maybe I should just ask her to buy me a bottle. Is it alright to get your daughter-in-law to buy your booze? Oy! Now what I really like is the second picture, the non-alcholic carbonated wine, yum! But it doesn't count. I think it will only help if it tastes bad and has the potential to get you drunk. Perhaps I will dump this old bottle out and buy a new one, I need to start becoming a lush as soon as possible. Any suggestions are truly appreciated.
