Welp folks. I was supposed to post episode 2 of the adventures of Britt & Mic today BUUUUUUUT I failed. BUT I HAVE AN EXCUSE! Stranger Things season 3 has been out for over a month and I told my sister we would watch together and we haven’t been able to. So last night we got sucked in to two episodes AND I LIVED FOR IT. Yes, I Brittany Lawrence, sacrificed my blog due date for Stranger Things and I don’t regret it 🤣. Look for the new episode tomorrow AND the video on IGTV. Come on, you don’t want to miss a chance to see me be awkward AMIRIGHT?! So in the mean time, catch up on last weeks if you haven’t yet here!
Thursday night and Heather and I finally had the night off together. We were going to snack for dinner and watch disney movies. Sounded like a good roomie movie night.
Me: “I’ll make the popcorn!”
Heather: “Okay I’ll open the wine!”
So I start making the popcorn, in a pot of course because it’s so much better than the microwaved bag one, and heather gets the cork screw out to open the wine. The popcorn starts to pop, Heather is still working on the wine. The popcorn is done, Heather is still working on the wine. I poured the popcorn into two bowls and salted it, Heather is still trying to open the wine.
Heather: “Britt I can’t get this.”
She had the corkscrew barely in the cork and couldn’t screw it down any farther so she took it back out. The cork was starting to look a little beat up. I told her I would try, maybe I was strong enough.
I took the bottle and the corkscrew from her and started screwing it in. It seemed to be going good. It kept twisting and twisting and soon started to seem like it wasn’t going farther down into the cork. Suddenly I felt something come loose…
I broke the screw off the corkscrew. I must have been too strong for it. We died laughing. But now what do we do with the screw? We couldn’t get it out of the cork and we don’t have pliers to try it. So now we have a full bottle of wine in our fridge with a corkscrew sticking out of it and we have to be careful to not cut ourselves on it when we get stuff out.
This must be why it’s “Wine Wednesday” and not “Wine Thursday”. Wine bottles refuse to be opened on Thursdays. We got a new opener though to try it again this week!
We will see how it goes. You know us Tragic Girls need us a drink! If we can open it…
