To Bacchus

“When they’re young, they’re not good for much of anything.  Of course, we’re always happy to see them — especially when they’re particularly bountiful.  But until they mature they’re very hard, sour and, frankly, unattractive. Only the most desperately hungry pests will even touch them.”

The winemaker continued.

“But as they soak up the sun, they grow and ripen.  Their skins thin and they develop a sweetness that makes them so much more desirable than they were in their youth. They become softer and more succulent. Their flavors mellow and they become more palatable. The more mature they are, the greater the likelihood they can be made into something pleasurable.”

Wait! Back up a minute here!

Are we still talking about grapes?


About PD Williams

Writer - primarily humorous women's fiction. My secret agenda is to help men become in actuality the visions they think they already are. I point out their many flaws in the kindest, gentlest, most supportive way I know -- gotta protect those fragile male egos -- so we can stop wasting our energy trying to change them. After all, as women, we have more important things to do.
