For your enjoyment-

When Kev and I stayed at the Hilton for my birthday, we set up our reservations under a "Romance Package." This included $75 to put toward room service or dining in the hotel. It also included a sparkling beverage of our choice.

We opted for dinner in the steakhouse and had sparkling cider delivered to our room so we could enjoy it after walking around SLC. It was such a treat to find that waiting for us in our room when we returned.

The only problem was that we couldn't locate a bottle opener. Kev couldn't pop the lid off no matter what he tried (door hinge, lamp base, keys...). It was hilarious. I was convinced there had to be one with the ice bucket, but we couldn't find one. Kev ended up poking a hole in the cap of the cider and daintily filling our fluted glasses drop-by-drop.

The next morning when Kev poured out the melted ice, the bottle opener dropped into the sink. I was so embarrassed about the hotel staff finding our mutilated bottle cap on the cider that I begged Kev to pop the top off and dispose of the evidence. He refused and said he wanted to give the staff a good laugh for the day.

I'm still embarrassed, but it's okay because I can laugh about it now.

  3. That cap would make a lovely addition to a scrapbook!

    I once opened a bottle of wine with a butter knife. Yep. It was as challenging as it sounds.

    My husband once cut the crap out of his hand trying to open a bottle-cap with a key. I stopped the bleeding, made sure he was OK, then calmly pried the cap off with the same key. I got the touch, baby! :)
