Death of the corkscrew

I decided that I deserved a glass of wine tonight after a long day at work. The problem was that I had no wine at home, meaning I would have to stop on my way home. That meant my fave place -- Andronico's.

I was tired though and the wine aisle was overwhelming. I decided to stick to a basic, something that wouldn't require a great deal of thought. That's when I saw a fave standby -- but it was different. The cork had been replaced with a screwtop cap. I will miss the days of pulling the cork out of the bottle and chuckling as I read "Better Reds than dead," imprinted on the side of the cork.
