OMG, I dropped my Erte bottle!


Recommended Posts

I've been nursing the last few jiggers left in a bottle of ERTE, which I probably posted about my fantastic estate sale find a year or two ago.

My wife is out of town on business for several days, so I pulled all of my good stuff out to enjoy a few small sips of each this week while watching Artsy Blu Rays that she can't stand.

ONE bottle fell out of my hands, and started spinning wildly on the floor. Yes, it was the $1,000 Erte. Yes the chrystal stopper spun out, Yes, I lost probably 2 ounces.

I'm off to finish the Johnny Walker Blue left over from a cruise.

Poop! :angry:

I would have been off to find a straw...

True rye and true bourbon wake delight like any great wine...dignify man as possessing a palate that responds to them and ennoble his soul as shimmering with the response.

I'm almost 70, and to coax "chubby" to get back up to a vertical position, even if my wife was in town, would have taken help from the 911 squad. . Her seeing me there, face down on the floor with a straw, would've been the last straw. If you get my gist. :shock:

She doesn't appreciate nice cognac, which is both bad and good. :raz:
