This is a question Faking it

Rakky writes, "We've all done it. From qualifications to orgasms, everyone likes to play 'let's pretend' once in a while."

So when have you faked it? Did you get away with it? Or were your mendacious ways exposed?

House Party !!
As you do - 16 years old, Mum & Dad away - down the pub - only logical thing to do is to invite 30 randoms back to your house to carry on the session.

Fast forward to the morning, as I open my eyes - first thing I see is a girl whom I have never met before sitting next to my bed, wearing my clothes - I am naked. Oh dear.

As I walk down the stairs, through the assorted carnage and bodies, the smell of massage oil, booze & cigarettes wafting gently throughout the house - nice blend.

Walk into the kitchen - on the unit, is a $300 bottle of chablis, given to folks by their friends from France 10 years ago - saved for a special occasion - I'm assuming my impromptu gathering doesn't fit into that category - can only mean one thing, I either find an exact replacement or its the firing squad at dawn.
It is a task made even harder because :

1) I live in a village in Suffolk
2) It is Sunday
3) This was 18 years ago, before flexible opening hours
4) Mum & Dad back in 4 hours

Cue widespread panic.

We must have driven to every wine shop and off licence in a 100 miles radius, and still nothing. Nothing even remotely similar.

The only thing for it - a $3.99 bottle of Chenin Blanc with a rather similar neck and bottle colour.

Steam off respective labels, replace.

When it was opened 10 years later, on their 30th Wedding anniversary...my Dad the 'wine expert' didn't notice a thing and remarked at what a good drop it was to all present.

Cue confession and riotous laughter.

You get extra points
for fessing up after Dad pronounced its excellence.

Is that
the world's most expensive bottle of Chablis evah, or are you faking the tale?

Maybe they were
Hong Kong dollars (~£20)

Regardless of the fact I am clicking because I just like when people expect expensive they taste expensive!

Now then
I'm sure I've heard this particular story before.

20 year old chablis would be minging enough (good Chablis usually peaks at 7-10 years old if kept right) but 10 year old £4 chenin blanc should be undrinkable. And $300 is very steep for one bottle as other people have pointed out. As far as wine goes your dad has been faking it royally!

I live in suffolk
and I'm damn sure that if I bought a bottle of wine from the local offy it would be £3.99 not $3.99
