That is how this guy at the liquor store in Harlem was pronouncing merlot. He asked me if I knew anything about wine, and told him that I sort of did. So then he asks me all of these questions, including how "murr lot" tasted. I gave some recommendations but he got confused when I started talking about sweet and dry and didn't understand how a liquid wine could be dry. Oh well, I did my best.

Also at the liquor store, I walk in, and they're giving away free samples! Of gin!! I was so taken aback that they were just handing out gin (and cranberry juice... together? yuck) like we're at Costco and handing out free samples! It's a different world out here.
In other random news... a little girl fell asleep on me on the subway today. We were all squished and her head just rested right on my shoulder and she was out. Very cute.
