Confessions of an emerging wine educator;
(da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da)
Bullet points give you the wine progression
When I was young and with my folks,
home was filled with colonial.
Married, moved to Bangor, Maine,
where candles dripped on window panes.
- Chianti in baskets
Graduation meant moving back,
and yet another chance to pack.
And finding that divorce was real,
unpacking was a big ordeal.
Life began anew on a lake,
and finding wine shops? Piece of cake.
- Merlot – “Every bottle is a good wine for the money” he said.
We moved to Cali-for-ni-a,
where wine was flowing, a-o-kay.
- Belvedere Winery, Grove Street Winery, Barefoot Cellars, Robert Mondavi Winery, Ironstone Vineyards, and Kendall-Jackson (samples from employers)
A Windsor move to home office,
brought on Petite for wine’s full bliss.
- Petite, Petite, Petite, Petite, Petite
Our pipes did burst to flood the house…
finding storage for what was doused.
- What wasn’t doused
Reenter home to say goodbye.
No need to moan, no need to sigh.
Just wishing that I was more free,
more like DJ J.J. Jeffery.
He moved from one place to the next,
inflatable furniture flex.
- Imports from Chile, France, Argentina, from all over the world, really…
I’ve emerged more educated.
Now what I crave forever more
- Is inflatable furniture…
- on the floor
