Casualty list


April 28, 2008 by 8junebugs

My move took a toll…

  • Every limb on my body: bruised in action
  • Two toenails: permanently stained by Benjamin Moore
  • Three gorgeous red wine balloon glasses: one lost in transit, one a victim of a carelessly flung elbow, and one delicately hand-blown bowl busted by vigorous toweling
  • One bottle of Highliner Pinot Noir: christened my kitchen floor (SO…PISSED…OFF…)
  • One bottle of Merryvale Cabernet: a barely interesting vintage, but still a loss

I’m particularly miffed because I had previously never, drunk or sober, broken a wine bottle. And I worked at Trader Joe’s for a while — I used to toss cases of wine around, and I was the only one who never broke a bottle. My ego is having trouble with this.

A friend recommended drinking down what’s left of my meager “collection” and I think it’s a fine idea. Except I’m down three red wine glasses.

    Dude. How come I can whack a crystal wine glass on my parent’s tile counter, but drying yours gets you a two-piece wine glass? That’s so not fair. Oh, and… How HARD are you drying your glasses? Damn girl.

    I don’t like chlorine-infused tannins, thank you very little. 😦

    Also? These were not fucking Waterfords, ‘kay? These were glass, purchased at a boutique in Middlebury that has long since closed its doors.
