Pride and a cheap bottle of wine

(Continued)

In the end, we both agreed that most of the time you do get what you pay for, whether it be wine or something else, and he laughed about how his wife had called him out on a few cheap purchases he had made over the years that didn’t quite pan out.

Now, there is a point to this story, and that is that right now I’m cheap. Wait, it goes deeper than that — I hate to be embarrassed. Well, even though that is true, it goes even deeper than that. The point is that if I had not returned to the wine aisle because I was cheap and uncomfortable, I would have missed out on a very simple yet pleasant exchange of thoughts and opinion about wine and life. In the end, because I swallowed my pride and told the truth, I left that supermarket with far more than a cheap bottle of wine.
