A Series of Things: The Bottle Opener January 8, 2010

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

I am very lucky that Tim and I are so compatible and happy together. It’s something I think about every day. I swear, I do not take it for granted.

Years ago—likely close to a couple of decades ago—we both fell in love with a bottle opener. A bronze lizard bottle opener. This little sculpture seemed ridiculously expensive to us, but it was solid bronze, after all, and did I mention that we loved it? When the store in which it resided was on its last legs, we finally yielded to our desire. I can’t remember if the bronze lizard bottle opener donned a going-out-of-business price tag or if we simply panicked and thought we’d never see it again. But cough up the dollars we did, and it was ours utterly.

Ever since, Tim and I have maintained that we could never break up, because who would get the bottle opener? Isn’t it cool?(An online search revealed not only this convenient stealable photo, but also the news that the bottle opener is a dinosaur, which is a type of lizard—a terrible lizard, in fact. Anyway, ours is a bit darker than this and is even getting a bit of a greenish cast in places. And I am still in love. With Tim.)

Is this really going to be a series of things? I’m happily awaiting. And that bottle opener would keep me in a relationship, for sher.

Bridgett: It is in fact the fourth in the (obviously occasional) series, the previous three being “The 1811 House Snifter,” “The Cow Bowl,” and “The Bronzed Shoe.” But I do have at least a couple more up my sleeve.

Ah, so you’re staying together for the sake of the bottle opener. Makes sense to me.

Very cool bottle opener. It is not something Dean would like, however. I like it though. Dean is not Tim.

Oh, I love your bottle opener too. I envy it, and your relationship with Tim. (And your Sugartown tradition on New year’s eve.)

I myself am blessed to have used that very bottle opener. It feels very good in the hand. Sleek. Cool. Reptilian.
