Caught Red Handed

My sister came to visit for Easter so we did a bit of shopping on Saturday. And made a stop at the Liquor Store to stock up on wine (we can't buy spirits, beer or wine at the corner store). The store is called the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO). 

I go up and down the aisles looking for bottles with nice labels (I am such a visual selector) and merrily select a bunch of reds and whites.

I have 17 bottles in my cart when I hear this voice asking if I should be drinking so much. I look up and meet the eyes of my Family Doctor. Yup, the one I saw last week and needs to see me again because of my terrible blood work. We smile, I check his cart (full of beer) and we have a little laugh.

His parting words were, "I guess I should check the liver function results".

Oh well. I hear wine is good for the heart and cholesterol. Now which one of my 17 bottles should I open?

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter. I'm off until Tuesday. A lovely 4 day weekend.

Wine is made from grapes a fruit, I dont see the problem..
But I hear ya.. thats just as bad as meeting up with your protocologist in the grocery store.

Wine= awesome!!
Sorry to hear about the blood work...
I hope you had a wonderful Easter-- and I am intrigued by your suggestion that I might want to write a book b/c it would be so 'real.' What would you suggest I would write the book about???
That was a very provactive suggestion... so I'm itching to know what you'd think.
