    I called in sick because I am sick, can't talk, can't breathe, don't want to work. But honestly, I can't talk.

    So I got my fifth of bacardi gold and came home with it and ALMOST COULDN'T OPEN IT! Panic! True terror! It's like, if you can't call in sick and then drink yourself well, why not just go to work and infect all the assheads you come into contact with?

    Luckily, I was able to open it. Enjoy my drunken ramblings as I proceed to drink it.

    BTW...if you ever find yourself with a bottle of fine (that means with a real cork) wine in the wilderness and NO FUCKING CORKSCREW (I have bought hundreds of them in my time. I never have one. NO clue where they go) you can oust the cork by tapping the bottom of the bottle (medium gentle) against a tree trunk, exposed root (best) or if you must, a block of wood.

    It will come out. Takes a bit of tapping. Provides about 15 minutes of drunken hilarity for all.

    I have been carrying a swiss army knife for about 30 years. Same knife.
    No problem with the wine or rebuilding a helicopter with it ;)

    With expensive champagne, it's best to use a horse blanket over the cork end and only bounce it vertically, or you waste precious grapeau.

    Duct tape works for helicopters and light aircraft.

    I've never tried it on fine wine. I'm sure there's a way to do it though.

    I actually perform better at everythign while half or entirely toasted.

    Unfortunately, I smell like a still and occasionally say wildly inappropriate things.

    I often say wildly inappropriate things, but people don't think it's so funny if I reek of alcholol at the same time.

    FOR EXAMPLE...when my boss insisted I attend a CHRISTIAN fundraiser for some weird thing, can't remember what...on my DAY FUCKING OFF, my beloved bastard ex and I arrived in the middle of our second fifth. Did NOT fly entirely well, though we were certainly the life of that particular party. "GARCON! GARCON! BRING ME SOME MORE OF THAT CRAP!"

    Thank goodness I wasn't on the clock. And also thank goodness I knew things about the fundraiser hostess' husband that she'd probably rather weren't shared with the general public.

    Damnit. My previous actions when faced with a cork in a bottle and no corkscrew was to break the neck of the bottle and then strain the wine through some material to avoid the shards of glass. I never thought about being subtle. Blast it.

    Anyway we have lots of wines with screw tops now, saves the cork business and also avoids taint.

    I agree, not being able to get the bottle open is enough to bring on an anxiety attack in even the most non-neurotic individual. It's truly frightening.

    If you drink Jack Daniels you don't have to worry about a cork!
