Wellington Fiasco at Backbencher

Aaron is about to head into the Backbencher cafe and wine bar near the Beehive in Wellington to sell them some Fiasco.  ‘Fiasco’ seemed a word that would fit well with politics.  But the fiasco was to be all ours…

The pics below show what happens when you go on marketing trips with the family in tow…and the precious product is jammed in among boogie boards, wet togs, shoes, shopping & sports bags.  Of course the advantage of taking the family is the support from the ‘team.’  Well-  OK, we took photos, rolled around laughing on the footpath and consolded him with the knowledge that at least he’d done his bit to help out the wine glut!



And to think that, feeling slightly intimidated by the smart dress sense in the capital, Aaron had put aside the ‘big reds’ for this particular visit.  Obviously it was a mistake to leave the lucky charms aside 🙂

    Go the big reds! Although I suspect they wouldn’t hold up to broken glass.

    I dunno – I reckon even falling broken glass could defy gravity trying to escape the big reds!

    Are road-sucks out of fashion? Or, were you scared of getting splinters in your tongue?

    LOL – You are revealing your Lincoln education there Hainsey, road-sucks were never standard practice elsewhere 😉

    Crikey I hadn’t even made the connection to the good ol Crusaders…and with Blenheim legend and old classmate of mine Leon MacDonald back we can’t go wrong. I might have to get myself a pair of big reds, a his and hers set – lol.
