Although he loved his job serving the best wines to the richest people, he never failed to find a riesling to complain. Although he mulled over his circumstances all the time, he never failed to pinot his hopes on changing his bubbly career. For the sake of his varietal sanity, he thought of moving to Cork or the Rhine or Burgundy, but he lost his bottle. It was claret he'd always finish where he was, if he would only mature. He married Rosé,settled in Bordeaux, was always in hock and watched Magnum PI re-runs on TV most nights.
