I hate to jinx it by saying anything at all, but instead of the flurry of early-morning texts I’d been getting all week, the only texts today were about the damage inflicted on the cajeta yesterday that means I have to stop on my way in and reload our goat milk supply. What a complete and total joy not to be frantically contacting everyone I can think of to see who can work a double or find a babysitter or reschedule their mom’s birthday dinner to keep us from closing up shop.
I intend to celebrate this evening with something dry, be it one of the wines from today’s tasting, which you’re still welcome to join, be it in person or virtually,
or be it something rather stronger. We’ll see how the evening goes and I’ll make my decision then, based on an empirical study of the number of angry phone calls (only one last night,) the campers who won’t leave in time for the next turn of a table to be seated (again, only one last night,) or the frustrations of crew members who fail to heed instructions (that cajeta, for example, or the mashed potato fiasco of Thursday evening.) Dry beverage will be commensurate with the day’s trials and tribulations.
For the majority of you, though, it’s your day off, and you’re allowed, if you so choose, to pick up some wine samples and tune into Zoom in the middle of the day while it sprinkles outside. Here’s how to log in:
