How Was Everyone’s Day Today?
Oh, the end of the Valentine’s Day work day. The time when everyone either shuffles off to some sort of long-planned Love Meal, or hastily last minute planned Love Meal, or meal that’s just a normal meal that you’re eating because it’s dinnertime and not because you’re celebrating this “holiday,” either because you don’t happen to be seeing anyone right now or just because you don’t believe in the idea that we need to set aside one day a year to show our love for someone when we should just be showing them that every day. Or maybe you had a big lunch! I don’t know. Whatever. Just remember that when you’re having your dinner and sipping whatever drink you’re sipping, thinking about how perfect it all is, remember that it is actually not perfect because first of all you are not Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their life is The Perfect Life™, and second of all whatever garbage you’re sipping couldn’t possibly be from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new line of wines, The Perfect Wines™ (not what they’re called), because the first one — a rosé — doesn’t even come out UNTIL MARCH! “Oh my goodness, first Drew Barrymore came out with a wine, and now my second and third favorite celebrities are coming out with THEIR OWN wine? You gotta be kidding me! It really IS Valentine’s Day!” That’s you! “But wait, I just gotta ask — are they really going to have a hand in making the wine, or are they just slapping their names on some SWILL?” That’s you again, always the cynic, but obviously they’re going to have a hand. Take it from the article Decanter wrote about them and their partnership with the winemaking Perrin family: “They (the Jolie-Pitts) want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can. They were present at the blending sessions this year, and are relooking at everything from the installations in the winery – where we have already switched to stainless steel tanks – to reworking the labels across the range of wines.” OOOKAAAAAAY? They’re doing all of the relooking and reworking. Jeeze. Relax. Buy the wine. HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
