my oh-so-normal life

So I was at the grocery store last weekend and walked past the wine sampling. The man who was doing the sampling came over from wherever he was to ask if I wanted a sample. I wasn't feeling it, plus it was a dollar a sample, so I decided to pass. I was talking to S on the phone, and she told me that I should buy some wine.

So, what does a good girl do? Buy a case, of course. Must take advantage of the 10% discount on the case. So, I was pulling bottles and putting them in my box. Suddenly, the sample man came over and asked, "Do you need any help?"

I replied, "No."

He asked, "Are you sure?"

I just looked at him and said, "Mmm Hmm." What I really wanted to say was, "Are you trying to make me feel insecure?" or "What? I'm a chick, so I'm not supposed to know anything about wine?" or (my personal favorite) "I know you're much older than I am, but I do know my wines."

Instead, I sent S a text message. New case of wine. Life is good.
