What Happens

when my beloved wife tries to open a bottle of wine for a friend...













...Don't even ask. I haven't the slightest idea how.

My wife in her "eagerness", is also incapable of opening a package without making 20 pieces out of it, even when it says "open here" or "open other end" on it. :)

My hubby won't let me open the wine bottle.

I did this periodically when I was a waiter/bartender, er, I mean, actor. It usually happens to bottles whose corks have been allowed to dry out. Make sure not to store wine bottles with real cork stoppers upright, they should always be on a tilt so that the wine is 'wetting' the cork. Also, don't push the corkscrew into the cork, it's meant to 'screw' its way in, so just keep steady pressure, nothing more, and allow the screw to go all the way into the cork so you don't break off half the cork leaving the rest in the bottle (which usually results in that remaining half getting pushed into the wine).

Only one thing to do when this happens, drink all of the wine!

I didn't know you owned a corkscrew.
