Bossy isn’t picky when it comes to types of wine, but she has one prejudice in her life and it goes something like this: she thinks wine in 1.5 liter bottles doesn’t taste as good as the same wine in 750 ml bottles.
She doesn’t know if vineyards use castoff wine to fill their larger bottles, or if it has to do with the increased volume of wine itself, or perhaps it’s what that increased volume does to itself stored over a period of time, or maybe it’s the air that flows through the larger bottle neck to mix with the increased volume of wine when opened, and is it a surprise to anyone that Bossy failed science?
But lately Bossy has been rethinking her prejudice and here’s why: when Bossy was shopping for the booze that would eventually be consumed on Election night, she stood in the aisle of her liquor store and eyed up the prices versus sizes yet again, and Bossy found that 1.5 liters of Fetzer Merlot was on sale for something like $12.99 while the 750 ml Fetzer Merlot was on sale for something like $7.99— Bossy would show you the exact figures on the receipt except she lost the receipt and that’s right she said she lost the receipt.
But certainly the larger wine is the better deal right? Because that’s only a five-dollar difference in price for twice as much wine and please excuse Bossy while she slips into a math coma.
There is one big disadvantage of the larger bottles, though: it’s harder to know when to stop. If Bossy has a bottle in front of her and wants it to last for two or three nights, she knows exactly how much to drink. But with the 1.5 liter size, it’s all Frontal Lobotomy.
And congratulations to the winner of Uniroyal’s Emergency Car Kit: Susan! Bossy sent you an email. Thanks to everyone for playing along.
