Say something like, “I think I’ve got some cab sav in the cupboard” this way it will look like you didn’t just get back from Walgreens for the cheapest bottle of wine, minutes before your fam walks in.
The more the merrier, just bombard them with options and chances are they’ll just go with one of the first you offered you know you have.
Save the grief by your mother.
It’s all about the presentation.
You know you’ll fuck it up anyway. Just take a couple blocks of dark chocolate and break it up into pieces., and some fresh fruit if you have the time.
You’re place will smell great, and your fam will leave very impressed.
Another way to hide all the stains that have accumulated over the months.
