Tastes so damn good

There's a great moment in the film Sideways when Miles finally gets it right. He's learned that not only has his ex, with whom he's been obsessed, remarried but she's pregnant. His fantasy that they'll get together again crashes. But instead of freaking out he does something for himself. He fetches a rare wine he'd been saving for an anniversary and sneaks it into a fast food restaurant, surreptitiously drinking it in a paper cup. His expression tells us how damn good it tastes.

I thought of this scene while eating a slice of coconut cream pie tonight. I'm sure I looked as ecstatic as Miles.
