A few years ago, for some occasion I don't recall, my parents bought me a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. I love scotch, especially if it costs north of $200, so I wanted to save it for something special.

I waited and waited. I assumed the right time would come. But the longer it sat, the more it felt like the right time had to be really right.

Then the pandemic arrived. My family and I left our home. That bottle is sitting back in our living room. Who knows when I'll see it? Really, it might as well not exist.
