Then, this morning, as a part of our weekly routine, all four of us ladies ventured out in the freezing cold to gather groceries from the store. Our trip always includes a visit to the alcoholic libations isle where I pick out my weekly vino. I was SUPER excited when I saw bottles of Moscato for a mere $5 per bottle, I grabbed 2 and went on with things. Our trips always leave me wanting to drink both bottles by the end, but I always refrain. I did however pick one up after the groceries were unloaded to look at it and drool a little thinking about drinking a glass after the girls are in bed later, and this is what I saw:
|That's right, it says "alcohol removed". Who would do such a heinous thing?|
This poser was sitting amidst all the other legit wine acting like it was the real deal-- it even called itself "Moscato" and yes, the frazzled mother trying to keep her 2 unruly toddlers from breaking lose from the bonds of the cart-bench fell for the ruse.
Needless to say I will be heading back to the store later to exchange both bottles for something potent. Lord knows I need it.
