#225 – Fangs

There are some bottles of soda with the “low profile” caps that I need to use my teeth to open. I’ve even changed my mind and refused to buy them at convenience stores when I’m on a road trip because they are so frustrating to open. I wonder if there is already an infomercial selling some sort of soda wrench to attack those tiny caps with.

    ok it’s not just me then who has problems with the new caps. I keep an old rubber glove [that I can’t use for washing dishes b/c it has a tear in it] to grip bottle tops and jar lids for opening them.

    There are openers for bottles like that. You fit it over the cap, push down as you turn. But Ma had a better solution: An old-fashioned nutcracker. A large, bordering on lobster-cracker size. When her arthritis would act up, she still could open her Coca-Cola.

      Ka-Bar 1211. It’s not really a can opener, but doubles as one.

        “Ka-Bar!” is also a nice sound effect for when you get hit over the head with a saloon.

    Yesterday afternoon I was given a can of soda but one hand was full so I just bit a hole in it and started sucking soda out through the side. Good to know I didn’t think of it first.

      That’s how I drink soda when I want people to think I’m crazy. It’s a lot of fun biting through soda cans.
