Fake wines are a big problem. Well, it is probably real wine, it is just not the expensive wine advertised on the label. People all over the world are scampering down the stairs, to the wine cellar, trying to determine if their expensive, awful tasting snot wine is real or a forgery. Once down the stairs they realize they don’t have a wine cellar, and rush back upstairs to the wine fridge, tucked neatly between the sink and the pantry. They rip open the door to the mini fridge, and grab the bottle off the top, unscrew the lid and take a big swallow, “nope, it’s real,” they breath a sigh of relief. Well as long as it is out, might as well have a glass. Go ahead, use the Muppets take Manhattan plastic tumbler, it is a special occasion.
But suppose it would have been counterfeit, what are your options then? Well, you could take it back
to Walgreens, and try to get your money back. Odds are, though, they will not have an expert on staff. Sure the guy working the photo booth knows a thing or two about the grape, but he is part time, and sometimes he works in the back where he can’t be seen.
Wait until Friday, about 3:37. The production staff rushes out of there so quickly on Friday it is amazing. Honestly, they leave dust trails, scraps of paper following them out the door. Set up your siege ring, fire some tear gas through the bathroom windows, the accountant always sneaks in there for a smoke. March in to the office area, don’t bother going in the production area, you will only wake the custodian, and he gets so cranky, and demand your $2.97 plus tax.
Not only is it your right, it will teach them to try to charge a premium price for the cheap crap. You have standards, and the world will be a better place. It is kind of like a public service.

Know your rights, and your wines.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
