Screw Wine!

Today, I am choosing to age like a fine whiskey.

If you look at whiskey, aging of whiskey smoothes out rawness and greenness, it adds depth and complexity and smoothness, it adds flavors, it concentrates what's desirable. At the same time, there is the evaporation of what's less consequential and I think it's fairly easy to see analogies in human life with that process.

P.S. and on a completely UNRELATED note... if you have a moment, go read this! I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Thanks Dooce!!

My kind of girl :-) I find whiskey helps much more than wine. Wine just makes me sleepy.

I've never been a big hard liquor drinker (well, not including college), but when I do opt for a mixed drink, I like to keep it simple - whiskey & coke every time.
