Portable Beverages

I was driving home yesterday (a proven content producing trip) and while stopped at a light happened to look over at the guy next to me.

He was cuddling one of those Franzia Boxed Wines on his lap like it was his child. Not that you should drive your car with a child on your lap, but it just looked precious to him.

For some reason, I was secretly hoping to see him raise it in the air, open the spout and start gluging down cheap, low-quality wine while it splashed off and dribbled down his chin. It even seemed somewhat likely at the time, as he never took both hands off the wine box. Even when reaching over to fiddle with the radio, the other hand protectively steadied the box.

Alas, he didn't, making this story somewhat pointless.

If it was 'Chillable Red', I don't blame him for the loving attention. Or possibly he was reenacting certain scenes from Casino with Joe Pesci in them.

Hehe, it was in fact Chillable Red, I believe.

If he was renacting scenes from Casino, at least he could have stabbed someone to death with a pen. That would have made better post material.
