My cousin Ed lives in Calgary where the wine flows like beer – you can buy it in the grocery store. You can even buy “Champagne” at Costco. Ed purchased such “wine”. I did not approve and have included our correspondance on the matter. Furthermore, I think we should “boo” people and companies a lot more than we do. Don’t just save it for sporting events. See if you can boo somebody this week.
Ed – Bought a few bottles of (Kirkland Champagne) today. Sometimes you have to forget the label and drink what tastes good! (also got an $11 Segura Viudas Cava for a side by side).
Me – Please don’t buy Kirkland – if you encourage that type of behaviour then 7-11, Mac’s Milk, and Esso will be making their own brand as well. I don’t care if some “sell-out” French guy did make it and then got the buyers drunk over a two hour tour of his estate – it’s just plain wrong.
Ed – ha ha ha ha – wine snobbery at its best! nicely done.
Me – Can I use this dialogue as a blog entry – it seems funnier to me each time I read it T
Ed – Yes, I am funny. You have permission to use it. Unfortunately I have to drink my purchase, but I promise not to enjoy it
