I haven’t had something like this happen to me for a while, so I figure I’m due.
The Lees’ mom gave me a bottle of wine a couple of days ago. I’d saved it for Friday night, and excitedly started to turn the bottle opener corkscrew into the cork. Just when the corkscrew was almost in far enough to pull out, it broke. The corkscrew broke inside the cork. And it broke off just above the cork, so there isn’t enough leverage to pull it out. So now I am left with an entire bottle of perfectly good wine which I can’t drink. Figures.
