B: So how do you know what you like?

C: I know what tastes good in my mouth and this one is a little sweet, a little syrupy. The viscosity is… mhht, mhht, it’s sticky.

B: You make it sound yummy. Hmmm…  ummm, ooh, I taste molasses, that’s it!

C: So you’re saying this would go well with waffles?

B: Yes! Yes it would!

C: I might have to try this with breakfast sometime. One of the first “morning” wines.

B: That’s funny! Now there’s a wine for every meal. Oh wait, I know what will go great with this!!

C: What? You’re not making waffles now are you??

B: No, but I know the perfect thing that will go with it!

*note – Barbi had to wrestle one of the Mother’s Iced Oatmeal cookies from the ever sneaky husky, Besti! No humans were harmed in the sampling of this wine (or cookies!).
