If You Give Connie a Glass of Wine

26 10 2012

If you give Connie a glass of wine,

She’s going to ask you for another.

She’s going to notice that you break a lot of wine glasses because your wine rack is flimsy.

Then she’s going to start thinking.

She’s going to think it’s a grand idea to start a business with you.

Then she’ll tell you Greenview Designs will be the name of the business that will house your designs and her ideas.

Soon she will design several logos for Greenview Designs and make you choose only one.

That reminds her she wants to start a blog.

Sometimes unexpectantly, a hurricane will happen.

And she will blog about it and will make you read everything she writes.

All the downed fences from the hurricane gives her an idea.

She’s going to make you build a piece of furniture with the old downed fence boards that will hold glasses and bottles of wine.

She will make you go to her favorite restaurant because she remembers that she liked how they hung their wine glasses in their bar.

And she will invite friends to go on a reconnaissance mission to drink in the bar and to enjoy the delicious food at her favorite restaurant.

And you will eat and drink too much.

Soon she will have to buy many bottles of wine to go in the wine refrigerator that she bought to go inside the Hurricane Bar.

She will ask her photographer friend to take a picture of the Hurricane Bar that you have built from recycled and repurposed things you found lying around, while she was spending hours and hours on Pinterest getting more and more ideas.

She will ask you to attach your trailer onto your truck.

She will get you to load the Hurricane Bar onto your trailer because she wants to take the photo with a swampy background.

She will want to show the Hurricane Bar to her friends.

And she thinks that her friends will want one too.

They will come to your house to discuss building them one.

And if you get them a glass of wine.

Connie’s going to want one too.

I love this. You’ve inspired me… To drink more wine and then go build stuff! Awesome job.

Thanks John. Just remember, wine and use of a nail gun don’t mix!!

I like the way your mind connects things together and makes sense out of seemingly unrelated items 🙂

Janice, doesn’t everyone’s mind work this way!?!

Connie, I’m so glad to hear that I’m not the only one whose life goes like this. Some people would say we should just stay away from the wine, but where would be the fun in that?

Wine is what fuels my creative engine!!
