I collect wine corks. I don’t know why. It just seems a pity to throw them away. Wine is meant to be enjoyed with friends over a nice meal, at a wedding, or after a long day with children. On days when my sense of humor is limping along, I can look at my bowls and vases filled with wine corks and it proves to me somehow that I really am fun. Really. I am. While I was home for the holiday I snagged a bag full of wine corks from my mother’s house. Then, while we were on our fabulous Romantic Holiday Getaway, Shirley at the front desk caught me eyeing a giant bag of corks in the kitchen and she offered for me to take them home. So, if one didn’t know me any better, I looked like I drank myself silly this Christmas judging from all the wine corks I hauled home from Florida. Before Hoarders decides to do a piece on me, I think I ought to put my wine corks to good use.
