Forget absolutely everything anybody has ever told you ever, because a British lass by the name of Clare Potts just turned water into wine.
She has LITERALLY turned WATER into WINE, you guys.
I use the term “literally” figuratively, of course, because Clare actually turned her water cooler into a wine cooler, which is definitely in the realm of being the same thing. Sort of.
“We’ve just bought a house and we’re in the process of buying all the grown up things we need,” the Royal Highness of Refrigeration Innovation wrote to Mashable.
“My boyfriend Joe was telling me the fridge came with a wine rack and I just said ‘why don’t we just put it in the water cooler?’ It seemed like the obvious thing to do.”
Bloody hell. It really is the obvious thing to do, isn’t it Clare?
It’s such a flippin’ obvious idea it’s embarrassing the human race didn’t think of it earlier. Kinda like putting little mirrors on the side of lipglosses… or Nutella & Go.
While the wine cooler concept is pretty damn close to grapey flawlessness, it's not there yet.
You see, wine does this funky thing called 'oxidation', which means you can't keep it in the fridge for as long as that red tupperware container hiding at the back which you and the entire household have been too scared to touch for the last six weeks.
An idea for Christmas Day and New Years Eve, anyone?
You have Clare's (totally unnecessary) permission to drink fast, people. Drink fast.
