The power of Drama Queen wine

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!

  1. This is some epic level blackmail material here.

    Sorry about your exes. They probably didn’t realize how awesome you were until you weren’t around being awesome in their faces.

    • Meh, No. 4 honestly makes me laugh and roll my eyes at this point. I mean really….he’s engaged! What a dork.

      No. 5 is the one who is making my insides all hurty.

      Thanks :)
