Open Another Big Box

I've never been a giant wine drinker. I'll drink it, but it usually gives me a headache and I haven't found many kinds of wine that I like.

I always enjoy Champagne and the imposters. I've had Cold Duck a few times and have liked it. But I've never found one that I could see myself drinking on a regular basis.

I watched a news story about Charles Shaw and thought "There's the wine for me!"

Apparently, those who drink this wine call it "Two-Buck Chuck." The wine costs a mere two dollars a bottle and everyone they interviewed said it tasted great.

So I set out on my quest to find me some Two-Buck Chuck.

I discussed it with a friend of mine (the biggest wine connisseur in my circle of friends) and she had not heard of it. I looked it up on the internet and was dismayed to discover the wine is only sold at Trader Joe's, none of which are located in Wichita. Or even Kansas.

It appeared I wouldn't be getting any Chuck for a long time.

Last night, I visited my wine connisseur friend. Her parents had just returned from a trip to the west coast.

"They brought back the best Chardonnay!"

"Was it Two-Buck Chuck?" I asked.

She looked at me like I was crazy. "No, no! My uncle had it brought up from California."

Here's where she kicked in with the wine snob aristocratic voice "It was Charles Shaw. I'll have to look it up on the inter-"

"That's Two-Buck Chuck!" I interrupted. "That's what they call Charles Shaw wine! It's only two bucks!"

She just sat there looking at me incredulously. Then she jumped up and logged into her computer.

"No way!" She exclaimed when she discovered I was right.

I don't know why she can't just remember I'm always right.
