I hope your disaster wasn't one of those that runs in threes. Lilcal.
I thought I'd post another, with a different spin on it. Perhaps one that other people may like to participate in.
While I was working earlier this afternoon the scissor sisters song about taking your mama out tonight came on my iPod. The phrase about drinking cheap champagne made me start thinking.
Just before Christmas some friends, not close friends fortunately, came over and brought this bottle of champagne with them. It didn't get drunk because we had loads of booze that night anyway. When they'd gone his nibs googled up this champagne and discovered that a wine critic suggested 'cutting out the middle man and puring it down the drain'. His nibs said 'what are we going to do with this?', 'lets use it for luxury mojitos and invite X & Y over in the summer'. I said 'why not keep it until next Christmas and regift it back to them'. Not that I'd actually do it, mind.
So what would everybody else do?
Damn - thanks to a work interuption, it's my coffee break ffs!!!!, I forgot to say that the friends are a couple who really know their wine. What James May, of Top Gear fame, would call wine ponces.
