1. Sticking To What You Know
Now, I’m all for expanding horizons, trying new things and all that, but sometimes it’s good to be really good at something and stick to it. Case in point, a Sleeman’s Brewery bottle opener that I gratefully received within a case of beer. It’s beautiful: crafted of solid metal with a nice polished finish, in the shape of a Sleeman’s bottle and engraved with Sleeman’s insignia. The only problem is that the fucking thing doesn’t work worth a damn. The hole where the prying device lay is simply too wide, slipping over the caps with ease. I’ve spilled a lot of beer trying to use the thing. I know, I should stop using it, but it just looks so cool.
A note worthy of mentioning: Sleeman’s bottles come equipped with twist off caps. The caps requiring an opener are obviously of little experience in their house.
Apparently I’ve forgotten the topic of Thought No. 2. Could be aforementioned beer. Will try and remember though. Promise.
