Sour Grapes

Game of Thrones Tarot ~ 10 of Coins

Food and beverages. Land of plenty. Wonder what that pipe signifies in relation to the Game of Thrones?

I bought my most expensive bottle of wine recently. $18.95 on markdown at Safeway. This is the woman who actually bought a $3.00 bottle from Winco which was drinkable by the way. The expensive one? I spit it out in the sink. Worst beverage I've ever tasted. Took it back it was so bad. I still wonder what a $50.00 or $100.00 bottle of wine would taste like, but my personal quest to know is cured. Considering that is about my annual wine budget.

Until the last few years I've always had grapes in the house, now they taste bland or sour. It's been at least three years since I've eaten a grape that tasted like a grape. Is it the hurry up bigger and faster hybridization? I miss grapes. No 10 of Coins here. 


  1. Maybe a large tent pole. I have never been one much for grapes or wine. Wine is supposed to be so good for you, guess I will try grapes again, no vino for me.

  2. I wonder if age is changing my taste buds....

  3. Yes I think age does change our taste buds.
    I haven't bought a bottle of wine for many months, as I economize lately and such luxuries are among the first to go. (Still can't resist Miss Vickie's potato chips when they come on sale though.) You've made me think it's time I have a little treat, and my droolies are screaming "Dry white wine! Dry white wine!" Sharyn you are a bad influence LOL. -Kate

  4. Yes, I woke up in the night thinking tent pole!

    probably an ageing taste buds thing, yes.

    Dry was always my choice, but probably the aging taste bud things again, I find I know like Reisling. And step away from the tater chip isle. Put them down. They are beneath your frugal stewardship :)


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
