Port Fatigue or Wifely Pressure?

Post by DRT » 23:29 Thu 25 Feb 2010

Isn't it strange that almost every time there is a very large tasting involving lots of the most active members here, the following 48 hours feel like a ghost town with tummble-weed rolling across :tpf:

Do we suffer from port fatigue or are most people off earning more brownie points to cash in for their next off-line pass from the wife? :lol:

*As the only member with a wife who is also a member but who has never attended an off-line, jdaw1 is excused from answering this question.

I generally suffer from a bit of Port fatigue after a tasting, and also a bit of forum fatigue because I feel guilty posting if I haven't posted my TNs yet. :roll:

Oh I see...ok here is a deal I propose. I'll post all my Malvedos TN's here if you, Alex, and Julian posts your Malvedos TN's on FTLOP. I think that's fair :mrgreen:

Oh, and to answer your question.... I think it's a bit of recovery after major tastings. Like running a marathon, you don't want to run for a few days after. You just want to sit on the couch with a cold beer, a sandwich, and the remote control :mrgreen:

Or, in my case, I just haven't the chance to spend time doing anything other than work or sleep since the Vesuvio offline.
