In the Christmas season, our office is full of gifts from vendors. As expected, the Purchasing Department gets the most stuff, because, well, they buy the most stuff. And most of it is food. So if I visit that department enough, I don’t even need to buy lunch.
But sometimes even us engineers get a present. Like this bottle of local wine a vendor sent me, as a token of appreciation for buying his equipment. It is called “Duct Tape Red”. Unfortunately, this vendor is not from a place known for its wines, so our family of wine snobs did not give it the greatest reviews. But that doesn’t mean I can’t write a blurb for it. So here goes:
“Like its namesake, this red wine fixes everything, at least for a few hours, if used in large enough quantities. With hints of its namesake, cranberries, and Gatorade, it is best enjoyed in a Red Solo cup, over ice, in large quantities, after a nasty break-up, the death of one’s favorite ‘Walking Dead’ character,” or despair over the results of the last election.”
I think it will be OK if we add some juices and make sangria out of it.
