The Struggle Is Real

I spend about 20 minutes today trying to open an Angry Orchard bottle. When I bought them, I didn’t pay attention to the fact that they are not twist-off tops.  Somehow I have made it through college without ever buying a bottle opener, so I had to get creative when opening my hard cider.  I tried using a strong metal cabinet door knob to pop the cap off. That didn’t work out so well.  I also tried using a spoon, and that too failed. Finally, I got frustrated enough to take a pair of scissors to the top.  I had to loosen about half of the cap before I could pop the cap off with the cabinet door knob.  At one point, I tried to just pry it off with my nails.  Not the world’s brightest idea.  Hooray for not one but TWO broken nails!  

I should probably clarify that 5 of those 20 minutes was spent with me trying to twist off the top.  I kind of felt like an idiot after I read the part of the cap that said “Use a Bottle Opener.”  And to think, I have a college degree…I’ll just come out and say it:  Bless my heart.
