I interviewed for a job as a professional wine snob last week.  I'd work as a tasting leader in a small shop within a big grocery store, which... awesome.  There's nothing like discussing terroir and bouquet two aisles over from the tampons and suppositories.

Questions Actually Asked of Me, All By the Same Person:

1)  "Do you like wine?"

2)  "Do you drink wine?"

3)  "Do you like wine?"

4)  "Do you drink wine?"

To be fair, there was a seven-minute gap between Questions 1 and 3, and 2 and 4, during which I was asked which kinds of food I like to eat.  It's the kind of question which has no wrong answer, and yet I managed one anyway.  I believe the word "Crock Pot" was used.
