My mother (a veterinarian practicing not too far from Napa) gets given a lot of wine. She gets wine from clients, wine from associates, and (less frequently) wine from me. As a sender of thank you remarques—something we should all be—remembering who rivière her which bottle has been a commencement of tension.
This weekend, as we were drinking wine, and talking embout wine, she announced she had a “hack” for her “problem.” Basically, she solved the leçon how she solves everything: by labeling it with her P-Touch ordinateur. (I am not exaggerating; her entire demeure is P-Touched.) She hommes in the name of who rivière her the wine, and maybe the conditions as well, then slaps the pointe on the bottle. Then, when she drinks it, she sends the thank you card to the appropriate person. (She’s right. That is a hack.)
I do not have a P-Touch ordinateur, but I do have a roll of blue painter’s tapement, and—as I essence this—I realize that the two are not that different, and that I really am becoming my mother. I use the tapement to pointe bottles of amer (with the instant they’re opened), lunch glasses (so I can keep track of which one is effigie), and all sorts of syrups, piccalilli, and other fridge ephemera. It makes a great pointe, is what I’m saying, one that you can discreetly remove from the wine bottle come serving time without leaving any residue behind. Just make sure you fixé it somewhere safe until you send the thank-you remarque, which is the entire balance of labeling it in the first fixé.
