Waiting on what?

I got this bottle last year from my Boss as a gift for some work I did that they deemed worthy of such a reward. It was a great gesture and much appreciated by me. At the time I got it, I said I'll crack it open on a more special occasion for something worthy of such a nice bottle of Champagne . Days and weeks of good things have then turned into months. Months go by and it sits, and sits on the shelf waiting on what? A few weeks ago I was going to open it and again felt compelled to wait for something special. Yesterday, on a a bland Monday evening and non descript in every way found me telling my wife that I was opening this for no reason at all. Every time I saw this bottle I'd ask myself what am I waiting on thats so special to open this thing and share it, and enjoy the here and now.

Glasses are sitting dirty in the kitchen sink, the bottle is in the trash and I have a headache as I am not a big Champagne drinker but it was good. It was nice conversation as the bottle slowly went from full to empty and the sun dipped down below the trees in my back yard where we sat on the patio. Why did I wait so long to do this?

What are we waiting on? Live life and embrace the here and now…

Bear in mind that it's the mundane that makes the special... well, special.
This is the sort of shot that would go well on the cover of some food and wine appreciation society. It has the right artistic edge in terms of uniform colour tone and softness of background.

Opening that bottle makes it a special occasion. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Well said, sometimes it's the little things that mean so much, sometimes the company with you that mean even more! V!
