How to open a wine bottle with a shoe

Pond Life

You know when you find out things far too late?

I just admire his patience. It beats smashing the neck off and not being too bothered if you swallow some glass with it.

Doesn't it just. I once saw someone fuck about with a fork for 10 mins before i demonstrated that method.

Screwtop bottles elevated my consumption to another level. They were so handy to have in the car

The chap in a supermarket that i used to visit ushered me from the door to the wine section once delighted to show me this double size bottle of wine with a screw top.

Funny thing the other day. I must still have 'that look' about me. I was in this newsagent looking for Tizer, i found some but it was 89p a can! Anywho, they had rearranged the shop only a couple of days before hand. I mentioned this and he says "Yes and we are now open 24 hours too", I said "Really?". He says "Yes and we sell booze now!"

I'd seen the look on his face before, that 'i could pay the house off quicker' look.

I used to go to different shops/supermarkets because I thought I might get a 'reputation' if I bought all my booze at the same one so I had a Safeway/Tesco/Sainsburys/Oddbins/Thresher etc weekly itinerary that came unstuck when the woman on the till at Oddbins suddenly got a job at Sainsburys and she gave me that 'I'm sure I sold you some vodka yesterday' look.

I was thinking about this yesterday. I was fiercely proud of my drinking and never hid it. Quite the reverse, i was so in peoples faces about it. I had a great relationship with all of the shops i used to visit. About 2 weeks after i stopped i was walking by one such place and the owner came running out to see if i was ok.

 There's quite a distinct divide between the proud drinkers and the ones (like me) who shuffled around pretending they were normal. About 3 months after I stopped we had a new bathroom put in and as the plumber was stripping out the old one I heard the unmistakeable sound of tumbling bottles. I'd forgotten I'd hidden a load of empties behind the bath panel.

It is funny you know, i can listen to someone talking about their experiences and relate to loads of it but other parts i just do not relate to at all.
