Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Grape Wine:

This is why I didn’t show up for work yesterday. I was cleaning out my wife’s grandpa’s cellar and found 12 bottles of his home-bottled grape wine under the steps. My wife told me to empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink, or else. I agreed to do the unpleasant task.

I withdrew the cork form the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I extracted the cork from the second bottle, did likewise, and drank one glass, just to check the taste to see if the old fellow knew his wine making. He did.

I then opened the third bottle, and poured it, too, down the sink, but not until drinking one full glass to check the purity. It was very good. I did this, also with the fourth bottle. One glass for myself, and the rest down the sink. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next, and drank one sink out of it and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork from the bottle, then corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.

When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the bottles, corks, glasses and sinks with the other, which were 29, and as the house came by I counted them again, and finally had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank. I felt so foolish that I couldn’t go upstairs and congratulate my wife to tell her what a great winemaker her grandpa was. I will do that after climbing the basement steps the next time they come by.

    steadied the house with one hand….LOL I'm afraid I wouldn't have made it through all 12 bottles after I emptied the first two (down the sink of course) I would have needed a wee bit of a nap.

      Me either, but I thought this was very funny. 🙂

    Ha ha ha Sandee, this is so funny. I think his wife will have to go down the cellar to look for him to find him totally knocked out!

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:51 pm

      I would have been sleeping a long time ago. 🙂

  3. October 25, 2015 at 4:38 am

    Well I don't blame him I mean wine has to be tasted, right?

    Have a vinotastic day sandee g-)

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:51 pm

      I do like a glass or two of good wine. 🙂

  4. October 25, 2015 at 5:14 am

    Oh Goodness, what a good time that guy had. Good thing he was able to steady the house with one hand.That one did make me laugh big time. Sandee, you and Zane try to have a good day.

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:52 pm

      I've had a night or two like that many years ago. I'm much smarter now. 🙂

    The sink certainly didn't deserve all of it. Heeheehee! Good one, and have a great Silly Sunday!

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:52 pm

      Looks like the sink got most of the wine and that's probably a good thing. 🙂

  6. October 25, 2015 at 6:35 am

    He forgot to phone a friend! Haha. Good one.

    Big hugs, honey…

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      Yes, if you're going to do that you shouldn't be alone. 🙂

  7. October 25, 2015 at 6:53 am

    I've been there…long ago, but I know the place well.

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      Me too Joe. Aren't you glad we wised up? Me too. 🙂

  8. October 25, 2015 at 7:39 am

    LOL Sandee! This is too funny! Thank you so much for sharing. I am thinking of you and praying for you. Hugs.

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      Thank you Linda. One day at a time. 🙂

  9. October 25, 2015 at 7:42 am

    oh my he's really floating! Have a lovely day and BIG HUGS to you and Zane- and Lucy sends her love also!

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:54 pm

      Tell Miss Lucy thanks. We can use all the hugs and love we can get. 🙂

    It's time for a divorce. Telling hubby to pour good wine down the drain is insanity.

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:54 pm

      I agree. Yes I do. 🙂

  11. October 25, 2015 at 8:57 am

    sounds about right.:)) :-h :-f :-*d-)

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:54 pm

      Yep, a man and some wine can get into some trouble pretty quickly. 🙂

  12. October 25, 2015 at 8:58 am

    What a waste of good wine! Dumb wife for wanting it all poured down the drain. LOL

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:55 pm

      I agree Jean. Wine is to be enjoyed not discarded down the drain. 🙂

  13. October 25, 2015 at 3:09 pm

    Yeah, I agree with the others. Why on Earth would you throw out good wine?

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:55 pm

      I haven't a clue. I can see why you shouldn't drink it all in one sitting though. 🙂

  14. October 25, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    Burp! Burp! Burp! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    See ya Sandee. Sorry for being so late. My internet and phone line were out for over 24 hours. Wow, someone at the junction box unplugged the wire to my home. Stupid.

      I wondered where you were. Glad all is well. 🙂

  15. October 25, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    Laughing…I'm dizzy…Happy Sunday Sandee, I've missed you. :))

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:56 pm

      Hi Annie, I've missed you too. Big hugs. 🙂

  16. October 26, 2015 at 1:16 am

    Now that's a dedicated husband! 😉

    big hugs xoxo

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:56 pm

      We would have hid the wine I think. Sure wouldn't have poured it down the drain. That's alcohol abuse. 🙂

  17. October 26, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    He should've had wine gums instead!

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      He would have done far better that's for sure. 🙂

  18. October 26, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    woo…now I am dizzy

    • October 26, 2015 at 3:58 pm

      Yep, he's more than dizzy. And later he's going to be sick. 🙂

  19. October 26, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Don't drink & type. I still can't help but wonder why his wife wanted it tipped out if it was so good.

    • October 28, 2015 at 6:25 am

      Yep, that was some wine tasting wasn't it. 🙂

  20. October 26, 2015 at 11:30 pm

    Hi Sandee, can you please delete the SS link to the Tony Files as I transferred everything back to Atomic Underpants & am going to delete The Tony Files site. Having separate comics & blog sites is just extra hassle

  21. November 3, 2015 at 2:51 am

    LOL – he should have shared some with his wife.

    • November 3, 2015 at 7:10 am

      I agree Rhonda. They would have both had a great time. 🙂
