I have absolutely no willpower

After a decadent birthday weekend in New Orleans (more about that later), I had decided to take the first part of the week easy. All day yesterday I planned on a very "good" evening. Spinning at 6:30 and then a modest dinner of baked chicken and steamed veggies. Maybe some educational reading and teeth whitening too, just for kicks.

All was completely on-track until late afternoon when a computer malfunction forced me to meet up with my boss at one of our favorite accounts. Lots of comraderie and joking with the buyer, some sampling of things in our various bags... one thing led to another. Corks started popping.

Next thing I knew, the buyer was opening things off of his reserve list and letting us choose. Twomey 2004 Merlot, Catena single vineyard Malbec, and the coup de gras - Hollywood and Vine 2004 Cabernet... let's just say it turned into a long evening of free steaks and big wines.

So much for being good. I could have easily left before all of the indulgence started. But what can I say? When corks start popping like that, any hope of willpower just shoots right out the window. I'm only human, afterall.

Ah, yes, torture. Of course, that is the "down side" to our business, LOL!
