Bumble Bee SuperFresh Meals

Bumble Bee SuperFresh Meals

Napoleon once said that in victory you deserve champagne, but that in defeat you need it, a sentiment with which I could not possibly agree more.

Enjoyment, or as Nero called it ‘feeling human,’ is all too often reserved for special moments, or we allot ourselves specific time inside of our busy schedules for brief interludes of pleasantries. By doing so, one has essentially accepted that pain and drudgery are the norm, with enjoyment relegated to being that proverbial diamond stuck in the metaphoric ruff. After all, who among us isn’t more familiar with the coil lights of our offices than we are with watching the sunset? Or, perhaps more apropos to our subject, how many of us are still waiting for that ‘Special Moment’ to un-cellar that overpriced vintage that’s been on hand for too many years now? Or we’ll try that new posh restaurant ‘someday,’ a strangely elusive designation of time.
