24 Drinking Wine on the Fire Escape

Sideways-movie-poster

I don’t drink a lot of wine because it makes me feel like hell. My nose gets stuffy and my throat itches. Then a massive headache hits me like a ton of bricks.

When Sideways came out in 2005, everyone I knew was raving about it, so I went to the movies by myself to see it. I really enjoyed it.

In fact, I enjoyed it so much, that I picked up a bottle of Pinot Noir at Jolson’s Liquors near Ditmars Blvd and drank half of it alone on my fire escape. In my defense, my fire escape had a great view of Manhattan.

It was like a romantic evening with NYC as my suitor. But then my nose got stuffy and a headache came on, so I went inside.

Red wine and I have been on the outs ever since.
