Here I am noshing on a Honeycrisp apple. If you've never eaten one then you're truly missing out on one of nature's most delightful snacks. But that is not what this post is about. Nope. I just wanted to explain the reason my keyboard is sticky -- an excuse for my typos, by the way.
In the course of that phone call I drank a bottle of wine that had taken up residence on my kitchen counter since April 2010. Without being able to fully explain why, it was the most therapeutic bottle of wine ever to pass over my lips. Shot to hell was my diet for the day, but what a cathartic sense of relief for it to no longer be a reminder of a 'once upon a time' that will never be. Even though my phone-in-friend couldn't toast with me, she was along for the ride. I let her know the story behind the Cabernet sauvignon. Normally I avoid red wines as they always leave me feeling like crap the next day. Clearly the forces of good karma were with me as I didn't suffer a hangover.
I'm really not sure where else to go with this post. Typically there's an attempt to connect the introduction to the final sentence. This time not so much. I hope you enjoyed the middle. Consider it like eating an Oreo sans cookie portion.
