When you’re younger, your interests revolve around rock concerts and keg parties and cruising around all night with your friends in your mom’s car. You’ll drive by a group of older people with their shoes and their credit card receipts and you’re just like, pfffffft! What a bunch of lame corpses who just haven’t realized that they’re dead yet. You’ll never be like that, you say to your friend, who is smoking a cigarette out the window so that your mom’s car doesn’t smell like cigarettes in the morning even though it doesn’t really matter because your mom’s car is definitely going to smell like cigarettes in the morning. “We’re going to keep being young and having fun in exactly the same way forever,” you shout into the night wind. What you little brats never realized at the time, of course, is that older people don’t enjoy different things simply because they forgot how cool the things you like are. Dinner parties and weekend get-aways aren’t appealing to older people because they just can’t find parking to the LMFAO concert. The interests and leisure activities of older people appeal to them in the same way that the interests and leisure activities of younger people appeal to them. This is what they want to do now, not what they’re forced to do just because they’re so old and lame. They no longer want to stand in spilled beer for hours, and also having more than seven dollars in one’s wallet at any one time can be nice. It turns out that grilled cheese from a late night diner is not the ONLY food in the world! All of this is just to say that The Wine Maven is a show for us adults. She taps into what WE like, wine and chartered catamarans. She totally gets US.
The show gets especially FUN around the 2:30 mark, but watch the whole thing or else you’ll never know whether or not the bathrooms on Captain Mike’s giant catamaran are “awesome”.
Great show. So mature. The Ice Storm. (Thanks for the tip, werttrew.)
