Older couple in the liquor store before a snowstorm: Her: "Do we have enough beer?" Him: "I think so." Her: "Isn't your brother coming to town?" Him: "Yeah." Her: "Well, we only have two cases of Bud Light." Him: "We better get some more."

Maybe it was funny to me because the volume of beer they thought they needed for a small winter storm. Meanwhile I had my 6 pack and a bomber.












Plus a keg.

Oh boy,did I have some fun with that one...
Hahaha! That reminds me of an English teacher I had who would always correct the grammar in my dialog. That always drove me nuts.

My former life wine snob has to come out and point out that riesling is not automatically a desert wine. Certainly, riesling is a common varietal in dessert wines, and even many rieslings which are not dessert wines are on the sweet side. While many rieslings are pretty sweet, overall they actually cover a pretty wide range on the dry/sweet spectrum.

"Well actually..." ( in a very snobbish British accent )

I think cream niagra wine was def more of a desert wine than reisling personally.

In the NY wine region there's rieslings that are dry as a bone. 0% residual sugar. One of my favorites. More than 1% and I find it gross.

And there's plenty of sweet reds too.

I like French champagne from epernay (sp?) with my caviar. Been too long since I had that last at this French reasturant on the far side of the lagoons in vermilion. Every time we drive over the lagoons to get there,the Giligan's island theme runs through my head.
