QUINCY, Washington "I don't exercise. I don't cook. And I don't drink!" a woman announces. Cheers rifle the room.
OK, fine. Sometimes a lady just needs a microbrew, jalepeño chips and a monster truck rally to unwind. But maybe play that down at a yoga-and-wine retreat, eh?
Not this crowd. Most are insurance executives on a girlfriend getaway. One keeps asking, "what's the difference between chardonnay and white wine?"
Radiant, patient, the instructor Angela Gargano replies, "do you mean red wines and white wines? Pigment varies, based on the time the grape skin ferments..."
"No, no," the woman insists, even louder, like a befuddled tourist overseas. "Chardonnay. White wine. What's the DIFFERENCE?"
Points to Angela for not simply snapping: "one comes in a bottle, the other in a box."
