The other day, I purchased a good bottle of Riesling. When I say good, I mean it cost more than five bucks. In other words, it wasn't no Boone's Farm or anything. But for the life of me I cannot recall what it was.
But I digress... as usual.
Once the wutz was in bed, DH and I decided that a nice glass of wine was in order and well deserved, so off we went into the kitchen to pluck down two wine glasses and fetch the bottle of Riesling and open it with the corkscrew.
Where is the corkscrew? No, seriously, honey... where'd you put the corkscrew?
Hellloooo? Corkscrewwwwww?! Where are you?
Nope. It was not to be found.
I know it was there the other day. The thing is, items alway seem to go missing in the exact frame of time when I actually need them.
I needed that damned glass of wine.
We then proceeded to get a little creative with our wine opening skills. We enlisted the help of a metal skewer, two army knives (minus the corkscrews, who doesn't put a corkscrew on an Army knife??), the stem of a cake mixer, a set of channel locks, and a pair of needle nose pliers.
Nothing, and I mean nothing, worked.
By then a good half hour had passed and I was in dire need of me some wine. So I did what any desperate wino would do. I drove the cork into the wine bottle and we both finally enjoyed a nice glass of cork-enhanced Riesling.
