The Best Advice: Wine is Good
When I was younger, we would go out to restaurants and my mom would order wine. She would ask me if I wanted a taste. Smart lady thinking I would associate that stuff with any alcohol.
It was awful. I wondered to myself and out loud, "Why would anyone drink this stuff?"
My mom would reply, "One day you'll drink it and like it. " And then she would laugh.
Then, I entered well under my drinking age I'm sure and had my try at boxed wine with some of my best friends. Big mistake. One of the worst few days ever. Barely could get peel myself out of bed and holy headache.
My mom told me when I got home, "Boxed wine. Always gets you." And for the record, the only time my mom sympathized with any hangover I had.
Well, Mom. You were right. Wine is delicious but boxed wine is sneaky.
