I am quite frankly so sick of the election that every time I’m near a TV I want to run screaming for the peaceful serenity of my wine cellar and start cracking open bottles. Come to think of it I want to do that on most days. However those feelings aside I feel a certain sense of obligation as a citizen of this great country to watch the returns next Tuesday. Although I have been invited to some parties I am resolved do it from the comfort of my home. The only important question remains is what to drink. Now some may say that I am putting more thought into this decision that I will at the ballot box- but Mrs. F I categorically deny this! A quote from Mme. Lilly Bollinger one of the Grand Dames of Champagne about her beverage of choice springs to mind:
I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.
That pretty much covers it, so therefore I am pleased to announce that I, Fred Foodie, proudly have decided to endorse bubbly as the drink for November 4th, specifically Champagne. As to which particular house I will give my vote to that remains to be seen. It may not be just one, for like certain people in Ohio and Illinois I too can vote multiple times.
