Friday's Top Ten

This week's top ten is an "email thingie" that I couldn't pass up. Kudos to the anonymous author!

The top ten things about wine:

10. Wine is not the answer; it just makes you forget the question.

  9. Coffee keeps me busy until it's acceptable to drink wine.

  8. Making dinner with wine didn't turn out so well. After five glasses, I forgot why I was in the kitchen.

  7. Remember to buy a bottle for Mom when you visit. After all, you're the reason she drinks.

  6. It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty. Clearly, there is room for more wine.

  5. I drink wine because I don't like to keep things bottled up.

  4. You'll feel better if you wine a little.

  3. The secret to enjoying a good red wine is opening the bottle and allowing it to breathe.

  2. If the bottle doesn't look like it's breathing, give it mouth to mouth.

And the #1 thing about wine:

  1. From zero to naked...in 1.2 bottles of wine!

Summer Ross said...

Linda Kage said...

Oh, man I've sooo missed your Friday's Top Tens! #1 is my favorite.

I just saw another wine quote on Facebook this morning. It said: I rescued some wine. It was trapped in a bottle. I saved the day!

Those are great! I've often felt like a better mom after one glass of wine

Carol Kilgore said...

Liza - Wonderful!

Suzanne - That's why I buy screwtops :)

Linda G - Gotcha!

Johanna - I can relate to that statement.

J.L. Campbell said...

Carol, you're a riot. I started laughing at 10. The way no. 4 is phrased makes me think you might have some Jamaican blood running through your veins. And yeah, I can see how number 1 can happen in no time.

L.G.Smith said...

Cheers to that!! I do love a glass of red wine.

Enjoy your weekend, which hopefully includes some vino!

Christine Rains said...

Hehehe! Good list and perfect for Friday night! :) Have a wonderful weekend.

Carol Kilgore said...

J.L. - I like Bob Marley. Does that count?

L.G. - A little red tonight for starters :)

Christine - And a toast to your birthday!

Tammy Theriault said...

Very funny!

Jan Christensen said...

Delicious top 10. Made me laugh out loud, which is rather unusual for me to do when I'm reading. Thanks for sharing this. Did you put it up on Facebook so we can all share it there? I haven't been on F/B yesterday or today yet.

LR said...

Heehee! Number 2 is my favorite.

I love wine!

Glad you're back, Carol. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

#4 reminds me of a sign in front of a local store: Stop in and wine for a while.

Carol Kilgore said...

Tammy - Fun Friday!

Jan - Only the link on my page. Laughter is good for body and soul :)

LR - I may have been known to provide that technique. Just sayin' :)

Golden Eagle - Wining can be a good thing!

Clarissa Draper said...

Funny! I don't drink wine but I can totally understand why people do.

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - Many reasons, many reasons :)

Leslie S. Rose said...

My friend RIESLING and I thank you for the top ten.

Medeia Sharif said...

Great list and I'm glad I stopped by for this Friday list.

I've drank soda until it hit wine time.

Old Kitty said...

And!! Wine is good for you cos they're made out of grapes and grapes are fruit and so it all counts to your diet of "five fruit and veg a day"! :-)

Cheers!!

Take care

Carol Kilgore said...

Leslie - LOL!

Medeia - Coffee and water for me. Until wine time, of course :)

Old Kitty - There ya go! I like the way you think :)

Stephen Tremp said...

BEST .... FRIDAY'S TOP TEN ..... EVER!!!

Nick Wilford said...

I like the mouth to mouth. It's my birthday today and there's a bottle of white in the fridge that needs relieved of its contents! :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Stephen - LOL! Thanks :)

Nick - Happy Birthday!

Nas said...

Hilarious list! Now I'm seeing the bottle of wine with a different look!

Missed Periods said...

Those are great. I buy a bottle of wine when I visit my mom because she's the reason I drink. (Kidding, Mom.)

Carol Kilgore said...

Nas - Cool :)

Missed Periods - LOL! I can relate :)

Michael Pierce said...

That is a list to live by. I love them all, but #9 describes me. Haha.

Carol Kilgore said...

Michael - I string out that pot of coffee. And we now have a Keurig, too :)

michelle said...

You come up with some awesome lists, Carole.
I like a glass of sweet rose from time to time...

Carol Kilgore said...

Michelle - I used to like sweet wine, but now I prefer something drier. And red :)

Pam Asberry said...

LOLOL! Thanks for sharing this, Carol! And now I think my brand new bottle of pinot noir could use some mouth to mouth! ;-)
