This afternoon (3/29) after a hard day at work, I went over to a coworker's house for a wine tasting event. I had been looking forward to this for quite some time. Especially since we had to cancel and reschedule the event at least two times. So after work I go over to my coworkers home and she had 8 different wines out for our tasting pleasure. What I really enjoyed besides kicking it with my coworkers was the PowerPoint Presentation she had to go along with it. I've been interested in the different wines but beyond the different names, never knew what made them unique. What was really cool is that she was able to pick up all the various bottles for under 9 bucks apiece and apparently if you buy more than 6 from Schnucks they give you a 10% discount.
I must say I did learn some interesting pointers such as swirling the wine around near your nose to "smell" the wine, then you drink some, hold it in your mouth and let it rest and if you don't want to swallow, just spit it into your nearest container and your ready to go for the next bottle. I actually drank majority of mine and cleaned my palette between each wine with a few pretzels. There were other options such as crackers, cheese, and some type of salami meat. So after sweating for a while from all the alcohol. lol I finished off everything with a nice cold Sangria which for me was the best drink I had out of all of them. For me personally I'm a sweet wine chic. I enjoy a fruity wine such as Moscato. yum yum
I stayed for about a hour then I rushed out and made my way to my Spanish 2 class. I was around 45 min. late but the class doesn't let out until 9pm so I new I had plenty of time to learn any new nightmares that were coming my way. I won't lie I was a tad bit buzzed and my coworkers thought I was nuts for going and told me to just skip class. I don't mind having a good time, but I know when I have to handle business. Been working too hard to get through this class. Not gonna phuck up now.
So tonight at midnight, I'm still have a small buzz because I have a seriously low tolerance for alcohol. Yet Im chillin in bed finishing this post, so I'll be going to bed soon once I post. night night.
