In vino veritas?

On March 9th, 2015, three objects were reportedly seen in the skies over the Borracho Todos los Tiempos Vineyards.

“So, how is the mission progressing?”

“Everything exactly as planned, sir. We’ve managed to downplay to the public and the press that the objects in that photo are just airplanes. Easy, really, because they were.”

“So no whispers or suspicion over what’s really unusual?”

“I’ve been browsing the conspiracy websites all month, not a peep.”

“All right number three, keep an eye on it. We need to keep this tech under wraps for a while, yet.”

“Yes sir. The preliminary testing captured in that image looks exactly like normal fog to me, too.”

“It’s supposed to. The lawyers are still warning us against ever using it. But the grape workers seem to like it. Aerosolized wine delivery—the perfect way to make this make this vineyard live up to its name.”

  1. I bet the grape workers stare agog, mouths wide open, to watch this awesome feat. Whether or not they get any grapes picked afterwards is debatable, of course. Why has no one ever thought of this ingenius method of delivery before, I wonder? Great story, Dave! 🙂

  2. Nicely done Dave! I like that the wine is falling from the sky so that the vineyard will live up to its name! Thank you for participating in the MFtS and I hope that you return next week! Be well… ^..^

  3. Haha! How imaginative! Love how you used the “fogginess” of the photo be the twist to your story. Everyone is going to be standing around with their mouths wide open and taking deep breaths. LOL!
