Are you a mother or a father, aunt or uncle, or just responsible for your friend’s children while in the grocery store? AND need to grab a bottle of wine without being distracted by tantrums, shopping cart mayhem, and/or loud oversharing about bodily functions? Alice Jones Webb, writing on Scary Mommy, has a post for you. Also, she is spot-on about bubbles and salty snacks, recommending fries and Goldfish crackers with sparkling wine.

Bonus non-wine link: The Forest Service was really cool in 1974.
