A Bottle of Wine

My cousin had offered her house to this roudy Oregon bunch. Little did she know that she was in for a fun and crazy time.

As I drove to her house, I passed homes of dear ones that I just could not pass by. After several stops and hugs, I continued on arriving not long before my cousin pulled in. James and Lisa were due any time having just landed at the Dayton airport.

"I have a few bottles of wine. We could open one. I don't know if they are any good," my cousin said.

"Bring them out, and I will check them," said the Oregon wine connoisseur in me.

"The bottles were given to me. They might not be good," she said setting two bottles in front of me.

"Sue....." I yelled as she went back for the other two bottles. "One of these is champagne."

I sat looking at the bottle. One word caught my eye.

"Sue!" I screamed grabbing my computer typing as quickly as I could. "Do you know what you have here?!?!?!?!"

Calmly she came out and placed two more bottles of wine in front of me.

"No, what?" she asked....again....calmly.

"First of all you have a bottle of Moet."

"Is that good?" she asked.

"It is as good as champagne gets," I replied. "But that's not the big news."

Still the impact of it all had not settled in. I could tell by the look she was giving me that my sanity was in question.

"You have a bottle of Dom Perignon!"

"Is that good?"

"I just looked it up. This bottle is worth over $200." She didn't faint but seemed quite pleased. The giggles started.

"We're drinking this with James and Lisa," she said.

And we did. Every last drop.

By the way, it was excellent.
