"The gift of wine warms the soul and creates an experience with memories that will be cherished long after the occasion is over."
Isn't that simply marvelous? I mean, it's hokey as hell, but I love hokey, so that in itself doesn't disqualify anything. :-)
But I freely admit, I'm especially fond of the "warms the soul" part. :-)
I stole it from an e-mail from Franciscan Estates, which has gotten it into their heads that I want to order great quantities of wine for gifts, or for whatever. I DO...only most winemakers and wine merchants, for whatever reason, cannot deliver to Indiana.
So it's kind of a waste of time to order wine gifts that cannot be delivered to...me.
I do want wine, however, and a sizable quantity of same, as I have just received REJECTION #1 from the list of agents to whom I have sent my latest submissions.
I don't intend to overindulge...but if you're pouring, I'll be right over. I could use a bit of soul-warming right about now.
