TRICK OR TREAT? HALLOWEEN CANDY AND WINE

WAYWARD WINE

For this Monthly Wine Writing Challengewine-stain1-2, Kat’s theme is “OOPS!”.  No greater wine-fail exists than this:

You’re down the rabbit hole.  You bought Halloween candy. You chose ones that kids want: Hersheys, Mars, Butterfinger, etc.  You know they are little bags of chemical warfare.  But serving carrot sticks will get your house egged.

Readied, you sit there: like Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin:

Between rushes of costumed, underage beggars, you do it.  You eat one.
