You might be a redneck if...

So I totally had this pop into my head last night. Dan and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and had just gotten home from eating dinner at Shoguns. I had our cake out on the kitchen table and had just started unwrapping it so we could slice a piece off. Dan was taking care of the wine that my mom had was the same wine that we toasted to at the wedding. Well it didn't take Dan long to figure out that this particular bottle was corked and we didn't have a corkscrew.

I was so dissapointed! Here I thought we were just going to have to forget about the wine and I was really looking forward to a glass. But Dan had a plan.... and neither of them worked. The first involved a drill bit and drill, where he drilled into the cork. But he went too far and ended up going through the cork. Well you know what happened next...little bits of cork fell into the wine...yuck! So it was on to the next plan...this one we got off the involved taking a large screw and putting it into the cork and then pulling it out with a pair of pliers. That didn't work either. :(

At this point we had been trying to open this bottle for about 30 minutes and getting very frustrated was I! So what was the only option left? Go to Wal-Mart for a corkscrew of course! Needless to say, I ended up getting a corkscrew and we were able to successfully open the bottle of wine. We even managed to get most of the cork bits out of the wine without having to injest them.

It was definitly not the smoothest operation, but then I guess most redneck moments probably aren't smooth!

P.S. the wine was as good as I remember from the wedding and was totally worth it!
