Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

I cut my pinkie off

Not sure what to pair with that, so I paired a foot surgery with it.

I had surgery last Wednesday and the Wednesday before that, and things are looking good except I'm going to be off the floor at work for six weeks at least. I just finished moving into my new place and I was up on a ladder organizing stuff and the ladder tipped over. That's how my pinkie accident happened, so since I have this time to recover I decided to take care of my foot surgery that was planned for January.

Things are good and I'm bored. This is the busy season at work and I'm missing out.

Someone asked me the lesson learned from this whole thing and I can say the positive thing is that I truly like what I do for a living, the passion is real. All I thought about when I saw my little sausage finger sitting in the palm of my hand is how the heck am I going to open a bottle of wine. Bad thing is is that I'm not tasting any wine right now... maybe it's Gods way of giving me a time out. A mini rehab if you will. TV sucks.

I'm recovering in my new apartment.
