anecdote #66 - the dress

when I was 8, the crushed velvet was "burgundy"
I savored the sound, outgrew the dress.

at store was told by the clerk, oh, no burgundy
was last year. this year, they call it wine (?!?).
alcohol; (?!?) contamination. pleasure regretfully banned.

Burgundy crushed velvet — scrumptious!

I can't remember seeing the word "burgundy" on a bottle, either, for the longest time.
