OK, this is good. No really, it’s AMAZING.
This bottle of wine — which you can get for $8.99 at Target, by the way — seems to have magical powers! No, I’m serious. Stop laughing and let me explain.
Two weeks ago I opened a bottle of Middle Sister Drama Queen (a delicious pinot grigio) and lamented how this was the only sort of drama I liked having in my life. In hindsight, that could have been the wrong thing to do. That could have been the jinxing moment.
**Side-step: Have you ever seen the movie “Bedtime Stories” with Adam Sandler? It’s actually a really cute movie and one of the few Adam Sandler movies I can bring myself to watch. Anyway, there is this chime sound you hear when he or the kids are telling a bedtime story. The chime sound means what they said will come true in real-life. Cute family movie, check it out.**
So anyway, I said that this wine is the only kind of drama I like in my life and I’m pretty sure now that I heard that sound. It could have been a wind chime, or my son laughing, or the birds chirping … but I’m going with magic because less than 15 minutes later I was contacted by ex boyfriend No. 5 after six months of silence. I also got an email relating to No. 4 that I just ignored.
Ah, drama! And it really hasn’t stopped, despite that wine being long gone.
Yesterday, after a long, exhausting, and emotional week of work, life, and baseball plus still dealing with No. 5, I picked up another bottle at Target while I was there for the sale on Oxy Clean and paper plates (cuz that how I roll). I figured I deserved a glass after the week I endured.
As I poured myself a glass, I thought about the last time I indulged and wondered what would happen this time, if anything.
I’ll be darned if it didn’t happen again. I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING!
I woke up this morning to a midnight text from No. 4.
Thanks to an exhausting day of baseball, errands, and playing in the sun (and a glass of wine), I wasn’t.
This morning he says he was “just chatty” and “won’t bug you again.”
Hmmmm…..where have I heard that before?
What the heck is in this wine?
And seriously, how can you not crack up at this? I LOL’d when I saw the text this morning. The wine is magical!
I can’t wait to see what happens next. But I’m wondering if it has to do with drinking the wine, opening a new bottle, or the fact I’ve posted a photo of the wine on Facebook. I think I need to continue to test this theory until I find what’s triggering the magic. ;)
And I don’t know if this is related to the magical powers of the wine or not, but note my son’s outfit while playing Wii baseball this morning:
I’m not sure what makes the outfit: The neon orange Keep Bakersfield Beautiful t-shirt or the too-small football boxer shorts. Or the fact he tucked the shirt in. Either way, This kid cracks me up!
