In which Daddyo schools Mommyo on wine

Scene: Mommyo and Daddyo are discussing which wines to buy to fill out our woefully depleted wine rack.

Mommyo (whose migraines keep her from drinking red wine), practically: “If it were left up to me, I’d get one red and one white. Or really, two whites and a red. Or maybe, for display purposes, a red, a white, and a rosé.”

Daddyo, respectfully: “There may be a fancy rosé, but in general I think rosés are thought of more as belonging in an igloo cooler than a wine rack.”

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
