I posed the same question to facebook. Here are some of the replies:
DB: Some bottles you save for a special occasion, some bottles ARE the special occasion. Enjoy it!
MT: Do I share?
Would you ask the same thing if I run out of air next time we dive?!?
MT: I don’t mind sharing!
After a bit more thought, I realize this: Of course I’d share my air. BUT this is WINE, and more important. 😉
DB: Two things I never share, great wine and underwear. That’s my policy.
BB: When I come to visit you…. 😉 Srsly…I think the occasion will present itself…and it does not have to be anything you would anticipate as special. Drinking it is special enough!
SuntanMidori: There’s a certain wisdom in this.
BB: Yeah…and your friend is right.. You don’t have to share…Two people on one bottle is enough to get a real enjoyment…with maybe a glass left for the next day’s sip-with-a-book… Four people on one bottle can be tepid…
SuntanMidori: I’ve been through every comment posted here in my head multiple times over the past few years. Really. Part of me wants this bottle – which is maybe a reconciliatory peace offering – all to myself. Part of me wonders if this whole thing is nothing more than a happy accident of a regift.
PL: Now is the right time. Drink that bottle of wine. Life is short!
MS: Life is short. Enjoy the wine
CH: Life is short. Take the trip. Buy the shoes. Drink the wine.
Obi: BREAK THE WINEGLASS!! MOL
