Adults of all ages, and children throughout Europe, enjoy the taste and feelings that accompany a glass of wine. There's only one problem: Wine doesn't exist. Fortunately, through sheer force of will, most aficionados are able to overcome this minor obstacle to fully enjoy their wine experience. Here's a step-by-step process for the uninitiated:
Step 1: You must believe in the wine. Envision the empty glass as a soulless, unguided universe on a slow and senseless collision with a wall of futility represented by the implosion of spacetime. Now picture some wine in it.
Step 2: Summon smells from your childhood to round out the palette. Some common choices include fresh-cut grass, Christmas morning, and new school supplies.
Step 3: By now, the wine should appear to you, looking and smelling real and delicious. The illusion will be so powerful, you may even feel a slight intoxicating effect, so please imagine responsibly.
