You have been staring at the wine menu for the past 10 minutes and not surprisingly, you still don't know how to pick wine. Both your date and the server are staring.
Now you need to order but do not know how to pronounce that random wine you chose. Do you fake a French or Spanish accent?
The wine has arrived and the server has asked you to taste it. You take a nervous gulp and mutter "That's great!" Actually the wine tastes rather bitter but you don't know what happens if you say so. In fact, is it bitter or "musky"?
It's bottle number 2. You got lucky. The server wasn't helpful with any recommendations but your second guess is delicious. It's slightly sweet and pretty fruity. Your date is impressed. And then you hear Mr. Bow-Tie & Coiffed Hair at the table beside you, with the exact same bottle, exclaim "It's off-dry!" What does that even mean??
How you love drinking wine but just hate the pretentiousness that comes with it.
You wake up! It was just a nightmare. You remember that your date is tonight and your leather couch is actually pretty fancy and really cozy. Most importantly, you got your regular winefix a week ago. Love fearlessly.Subscribe in a reader
