Crisis Averted

Last night one of the handles on my corkscrew broke JUST as I began to pull the cork from the bottle. (Who was that? I heard someone GASP audibly!)



As luck would have it, I remembered the corkscrew that I purchased at Wal-Mart in Texas last month. Cool Breeze and I bought a bottle of wine to take back to the room, and we picked up a corkscrew at the same time. I thoughtlessly packed it in my carry-on bag the next morning, and was treated to a tongue-lashing at the airport because of it. The nice man let me go with a warning. Where was I? Oh, yeah, so I dug the back-up corkscrew out of my bag and finished the job.

Don't you just LOVE happy endings?

Sometimes I think I am a loser because I don't drink wine. I feel like it would add a whole 'nother level of glamor to my life... Currently there are NO levels of glamor whatsoever : (

Loved this!

I once dug out the corkscrew with a knife......then had to pick out floating pieces of it from my wine.......

Yep, love those happy endings! I opened a bottle of wine a few days ago. Part (well, most) of the cork broke apart and fell in. And, I was using a fancy-smancy corkscew that was brand new! YUCK
