this, like so many of my songs, is based on a real event that happened to me his month, though it didn't happen quite this way. I will try to add some music today or tomorrow.
Cheers! (National Wine Drinking Day)
2/27/21 by Christine Winchester
I settled down on my couch after a long working day
I opened up my social apps and started to scroll away
and there, presented for my perusal, a friend's post did say
“Today is National Wine Drinking day”
Oh my gosh, what time is it? How could I miss this news?
It's eleven thirty-nine, so now I've got to choose
I was thinking I would just hit the hay and snooze,
but it's national wine drinking day and today I've had no booze.
So I've got twenty minutes left to go, I know what I must do
Use the stool up to the wine cabinet where I've stored one or two.
Red or white? Well, it's not cold, so red will have to do.
Where are my stemless glasses? Where is my good cork screw?
Then I settle down on my couch under a warm duvet,
Snap a selfie and I post that now I'm doing OK,
I tag my friend, who reminded me tomorrow I might pay
But I'm glad I can properly observe National Wine drinking day!
