Well, That’s a First

I’ll admit that I’ve broken plenty of corks.

But I’ve never broken the corkscrew:

I was momentarily stumped.

Luckily, I remembered I bought a pair of pliers at Ikea! (I know, I know I swore I would never go back there).

In Italian, “corkscrew” is cavatappi. Cavatappi is one of my favorite Italian words because it feels like a curly-cue in your mouth as you say it.  Gotta love onomatopoeia.

    LOL, I love your blog, it makes me laugh on a regular basis. Miss you. I’m counting down the days until we get to have espresso and chianti together.
