Becoming a real man

Men don’t admit weaknesses.

Until today, I have never been asked to open a bottle of wine (for cooking of course!).  This is a week of firsts.  After a false start, I was able to complete my manly task.

You’ve heard the thing about a man sad that he has no shoes until he meets a man with no feet.

imagine opening a bottle of wine with no corkscrew, and no hands and no feet.

    Here is a pix of the bottle of merlot fred opened for me.
    The chicken cacciatore turned out just fine.
    All’s well that ends well.
    P.s. I took the pix all by myself with the new apple iphone number six that fred got me. (I also got a vinyl case thing for it. Pink, of course. ) The countess be dipping one toe — tentatively — into the 21st century.

    It probably wasn’t the intent, but this video gives me one of those moments: “There, but for the grace of God, go I”. I enjoy wine and not just for cooking. When you consider that even the automated wine bottle openers require a couple of fingers to operate – it gives you pause to consider things.

    I am truly impressed that this gentleman appears happy and well-adjusted.

    The really easy way to open a bottle of wine if you can´t find a corkscrew is to push the cork into the wine with a screwdriver or similar kitchen instrument that is narrower than the hole in the wine bottle.
