New Toy Riddle

Can you solve the riddle of my new toy?

Don’t cheat!  Read in order, don’t scroll down until instructed to do so!  HEY!  I saw you reach for that mouse!  Play fair!

A new toy has arrived at my house.

I wanted it very much, but am frustrated by its presence.

Most people do not have one, or if they do, I am not aware of it.

A friend of mine recommended it after a night of drinking.

This type of toy typically brings me endless joy, whether I use it by myself or with my husband.

It is instrumental in unlocking one of my passions.

It is long, black and rechargeable.

This toy is not for children.

Do you know what it is?

It’s our new electric wine opener. 

And I will be much more excited about it after Lent is over!

    You had me – completely.

    Give a review, please? I love novelty wine bottle openers, yet I’ve never found one that I actually prefer over a regular old corkscrew. I’ve had ones that shoot air into the bottle, using pressure to force the cork out, but they always seem to get messy. I have a table-mounted corkscrew that you attach the bottle to, press down & back up and *poof* you have an opened bottle of wine, but more times than not, I have an opened bottle of wine with a cork in the bottle (just means I need to drink the whole thing).

    I prefer my wine opening to involve cardio…screwing, pulling, twisting, pulling some more, then I feel like I have really earned a drink. I am afraid if opening the bottle was too easy or too fun I would open bottles just for the heck of it. Then I would be sitting around with of bunch of open bottles and wouldn’t be able to drink them all..oh who are we kidding, I would drink them all.

    Funny Bearlover: usually the cardio, the screwing, pulling ,twisting and pulling some more happens AFTER I’ve opened my bottle of wine.

    And Paige, I was pretty sure you weren’t going to go there, so I did. You’re welcome.

    At first, I couldn’t imagine WHAT could possibly be “frustrating” about this toy you were describing.

    Aren’t toys supposed to alleviate frustration?

    Then I saw the picture. And I remembered your sacrifice for lent.

    Bet you can’t wait for Easter now…

    Yay, Jesus!
