this is why i can't be trusted


How I choose my purchases at the package store:

1. Prominent usage of the word CUPCAKE.

2. RED VELVET in scarlet calligraphy.

3. Attractive contrast between spring-ish label and bright green liquid.

4. Occasionally reading the crap on the back that tells you stuff about what it actually tastes like, if I happen to have time and the font is intriguing.

*

In conclusion:

Maybe someone else should select the wine.

p.s.
I wore blue eyeshadow when I was 14 because the color was pretty,
even though it made me look like a blind hooker,
and that should tell you everything you need to know
about the way my mind works.

I too, pick wines by the label and how I am feeling on that particular day--I have also started buying wines by how many points they have scored-nothing under 85. On a side note-those boots are fabulous! Brand?

You're ahead of me. I choose my booze strictly by quality of theme song - I've had nothing but Thunderbird since I was 17.

I painted rainbows on my eyes when I was 14. and, I still like bright colors....hmmmmmm and, I've picked some of my wines by the employees favorites at Trader Joe's marked by a thumbs up symbol. Those employees are pretty good. However, I love a pretty, interesting or a funny label too, like Bastard Ale from Cost Plus. That one is an interesting read.
