This question comes up every night at dinner, but it has a different application today: I have been awarded a membership to a booze-of-the-month club. Woohoo! So it’s either four bottles of wine a month for six months, or the equivalent expense applied to a beer-of-the-month club. I estimate that would last about a year and a half.
I should point out that I am not woop-de-dooing myself here; I belong to a very team-y team, and they kind of just cycle through everyone for these awards. I’ll probably be due again in 2011 or so. But it still made me feel happy and appreciated, though I do wish they hadn’t projected my photo about 12 feet high during the announcement.
Back to the question at hand: wine or beer? Since I know a decent amount about beer, and I get the cold sweats every time I have to pick out a bottle of wine, I’ll probably go with the vino. But man do I love beer.
