Remember Tetris, the computer game of stacking bricks that you probably wasted lots of the eighties playing – probably alongside equally pointless relationships that were never going to work ans all whilst wearing really bad clothes? Well it was released today in 1984 and that’s as good a reason as any to drink wine today.
Think back to shoulder pads, lines of coke in bathrooms and saying really stupid things like “Lunch is for wimps.” Well, thankfully you probably now know better – about some of these things at least – and today let’s celebrate our survival of that tasteless decade with wine.
Obviously if you’re lucky enough to have not have had to survive the eighties then drink wine today to celebrate that you’re young. Try Tetris and say, “You spent hours playing this?” (You’ll be back though because it unlocks its pleasures slowly.)
And yes, we played it for hours. We were young and dumb and didn’t know that wine was a far more enjoyable waste of time. We do now so let’s make up for lost time. Let’s start right now ……
A quote: “Balls! We want the finest wines available to humanity. We want them here and we want them now.” Withnail and I (1987)
