Chicken Wine

Kids say the darnedest things. Even when they are 31 years old.  My girl, M, keeps referring to La Vieille Ferme as the “chicken wine”.


Now there’s several things cute [or darnedest] about that …

1. It’s a Rooster – well technically i guess a rooster is a chicken so maybe she’s right on that one

2. The name La Vieille Ferme is actually right there on the bottle – however, the drawing of the chickens is probably more interesting than meaningless french words  – so i’ll concede that one to her too

3. She admitted to me that it was open for a week and still tasted good – I’ve never had a bottle of wine stay unfinished for a week so i have to give her that one on self-control alone . Also, she was using the vacuum suctiony thingy i bought her just for that purpose [see post on Weinfrischhalter Geschenskset] so good for you M for listening to your dad.

4. If she’s already right on 3 counts then who’s to argue about it still tasting good.

Also, i think she’s smarter than me and i love her so i’m inclined to agree with whatever she’s talking about – especially when she likes one of my favourite wines.
