I am a creature of habit, so when I reach into the cabinet to grab a bottle of wine I generally take a bottle of one of my favorites. So the bottles I don’t know slip to the back. And since we don’t drink very often, they sit there for a while. And, since we were recently looking at moving homes, we have been working down our supply, and were down to the last two bottles.
Sunday we enjoyed a wonderful BBQ at a friend’s house. We were to bring the dessert. On the way out the door I suggested we also take a bottle of wine. Hubby, being closer to the cabinet asks Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc? I always prefer a sweeter wine, so the Sauvingnon seemed like the perfect choice. At least it did until our friends asked, “Where did you get this bottle of wine? Did we give it to you?” A classic regifting blunder made even more embarrassing as not only was it a private label – limited edition from a school fund raiser, my friend’s brother actually grew the grapes used in that batch of wine.
No way to lie our way out of this regifting blunder! At least the wine was great. Reminds me that I should get out more.
