"…yeah," I said meeting him on the driveway.
"Your wine book came out today, right?"
"So was it good?"
"I got some LOLs."
"That's great!" he said. "Did people like your book?"
"Some already bought and read it."
"That's really great!"
"--and said they liked it."
"That's super great!" Mr. Wonderful said jumping up and down giving me high fives like a trainer to his boxer before the latter climbed into the ring.
"We will drink wine tonight!" I said "I've been saving a 2008 bottle from Grgich Hills for a special occasion like this, and how fitting that this year the winning Napa winemaker is celebrating his 90th birthday!" Once the words starting coming they did not stop. Apparently my verbal writer's block had been a very temporary condition.
My book, Evolution of Wine Drinker, is now available.
