365 Prompt: September 28 2017

Wine or whine?:

That was the real question and that’s what she’d asked me as I stood in her kitchen on a cold, grey winter’s day.

“Jemima, what do you want? Wine or whine?”

I hadn’t understood at first. I thought she was saying the only option was wine.

“Do I have a choice?” I’d asked her pointedly.

She shook her head as if she couldn’t understand that I was being so dense.

“As in red wine or do you want to whine and get it off your chest?” she asked again.

“Oh…” I’d uttered when I realised what she meant.

“Both,” I’d replied and that’s when she’d sat me down and we’d talked about everything until we’d finished the bottle.

Or two.
