I got ID’d in BevMo this afternoon! It’s been a few years or so since that has happened. It must be my youthful sober skin or my sparkly white eyes…..hang on! What on earth was I doing in BevMo I hear you ask. Or to be more precise, what was I buying that needed ID? Calm down people, I was just buying some Alcohol Free wine, well dealcoholized wine actually. It does have less than 0.05 % alcohol per bottle but that definitely doesn’t count as a proper drink to me. And even though it is virtually AF, you still need to be 21 to buy it.
The white one I am sampling right now tastes rather crap to be honest. It’s Ariel Chardonnay, but could certainly pass for watered down apple juice. But hey, it looks nice, it’s in a fancy glass and it’s a treat as I don’t drink it often. It’s making my Friday feel like a weekend and that’s good enough for me!
Husband Ed is going to drink the bottle of real white wine that has been sitting in the fridge for the past three weeks. I’m not really bothered that it is there, but I’m glad he’s finally going to drink it. It will be the first time that I’ve sat opposite someone drinking wine since I stopped. But it has to be done, and I’d rather it happen when I’m feeling strong. I do secretly hope that he wakes up with a hangover from hell though. How smug will that make me feel? Ha ha! Go for it Ed!
