I am reading this book called Courtship After Marriage by Zig Ziglar because, 1) I am a nerd who reads books like this, and, 2) I think Zig Ziglar is kind of awesome.
Anyway, in one part of the book, Zig talks about how his wife (The Redhead) learned how to play golf because it was an interest that he enjoyed and she wanted to be a part of it (and now she loves it too). It was like how Vernon started watching Gilmore Girls with me because he knew how much I loved it.
So... you all know where this is going... I have still been wrestling with this idea of Vernon drinking, processing it, and, finally, coming to terms with it (sort of... in my very own sort of way).
I'm not entirely sure if I want to do this, but it came to my mind that I *might* like to try wine-tasting ( wine reminds me of church and kombucha) with Vernon. I imagine the two of us together in wine country, sipping wine with our pinkies held high in the air, eating foie gras, and using words such as "marvelous" and "darling"... (In reality it would be more likely to consist of fart jokes and awkward conversations with the staff).
But I would to be like Zig Ziglar's Redhead learning how to play golf.
So, I mentioned this to Vernon and he says, "I don't really like the taste of wine."
