Regifting Blunder

Please Share:

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.

Here are a few of my favorite wine laugh quotes:

I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” — W.C. Fields

“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.” — Benjamin Franklin

“Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it.” — Anonymous

This is one of the disadvantages of wine: it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.” — Samuel Johnson

A mind of the caliber of mine cannot derive its nutrient from cows.” — George Bernard Shaw

About Rhonda Albom

When I met my hubby he was looking for a traveling companion. Together we have moved to New Zealand and visited over 42 countries, most with our now teenage girls. Things rarely go as planned, and generally we have an amusing tale to tell. That's what Laugh Quotes is about - the fun side of our adventures and our expat life.


  1. Good one Rhonda! Sounds like something I would do. I’m sure you all got a laugh out of it and that’s the only thing that matters! “Working down your supply?” :) Sounds like an excellent reason for a few glasses to me.

    • Thanks Paige. Yes, we all got a good laugh out of it, after a big {{blush}}. We changed our plans, and are not selling the house at this time. We would need a new excuse to work down the supply, but only one bottle left and a street party tonight. . . Better get to the shops. Thanks for the comment.

  2. Running a quick test to see if comments added from networked blogs appear on my blog page direct link?

    What a great story, Rhonda! I’m still giggling. I couldn’t imagine how I would have felt in that situation though!

  4. Very funny. I usually make theses types of blunders after I have been drinking.

  5. Good post! I have a random question for you. How do you get your blog indexed by bing? I have a related web blog.
