Corkscrews and Bottle Openers

Bottle openers and corkscrews. I have many. Now what to do with them?

I don’t have that many in all honesty but I have more that enough.

My cork collection is still sitting next to the fireplace untouched. Now what to do with them?

Do I throw them away? I still can’t bear to toss them away. I haven’t dealt with this. Have I? All those hours spent drinking them, and the money paid for them. It all seems so silly and wasteful now. Duh. I do have a cork board which I intend to keep. I can look at it and not feel any desire or wistful thoughts of drinking. I am not doing any more DIY projects with corks. If I offer them to someone else for DIY projects am I enabling them to drink?

What did you do with your corks? You threw them away, didn’t you.

My remnants of a wine and spirits collection is in the garage. Now what to do with them?

I will use them in cooking. And if the wine has gone off it will be used as vinegar, again also for cooking.

Rubber ducky

It may not seem like a big deal but it is, it really is. I have removed the champagne cork from my key ring and replaced it with a pink rubber ducky. The duck used to be purple and would change colour depending on the heat. Pink in hot weather, purple in cool weather. Now she is permanently pink. She’s old.

My cork collection is still in the too hard basket. I first need to put them all together. That would be step one. Put them all in one bag. Then step 2 would be I store them in the garage. For just in case? I am really sounding like a hoarder. Then step three would be to put them in the recycling bin.

Cork Collection

I have a pile of corks, saved diligently over the years. What do I do with them now? I have made a cork board already.

I don’t quite know how to deal with them. I don’t feel I can get rid of them. My car key chain is a champagne cork. I keep meaning to replace it with something else more appropriate. Haven’t found a replacement. Was thinking of a rubber duck.

The cork

Keeps its head above water,
No matter the weather,
Comes from a fine stock,
The older the better,
Cannot sink,
Regardless how deep it goes,
Can squeeze into small spaces,
Or fly like the wind,
Stops conversations dead,
Livens the party,
Looks ravishing,
Simply,
The cork.
