Somehow the image of a woman trapped like a bug in a big glass of wine has become sexy, cool, edgy …..
Wine time is sold as a “girl power thing” and Mommy’s Sippy cup is an essential baby shower gift.
So we decided to take one of those cutesy promotions for the essentiality of “wine time” and add our own captions. We had some fun with it, made it a competition and gave the winner a copy of Kristi Coulter’s book, Nothing Good Can Come of This.
Because quite frankly when you start drinking wine out of plastic sippy cups with grape bunches made of tiny purple pacifiers,
And when you actually add a straw! Gross!
That’s not really funny anymore, or cute, or empowering. At least it wasn’t for many of us- even if the trappings are seemingly sophisticated like these Stainless Steel Stemless Wine Tumbler With Lid
“Cheers to your new favorite wine tumbler! These bright and colorful stainless steel wine tumblers are the next best thing to hit your hands this season! ”

The last time I bought a wedding present for a family member it was actually a pair of those XL wine glasses purchased with love! Because enjoying wine time with enthusiasm was just a normal thing to me 10 years ago and the newly minted, powerful social media mill encouraged me to feel fine about my wine time. That eventually turned sour though. It turned out that I was drinking too much too often and it started kicking back.
