You aren't familiar with our subways are you? We often get two or more phones blaring loud music in a subway car.

How am I supposed to open the darn thing without risking poking myself with a sharp object and staining myself, the sharp object, the countertop, entire kitchen, etc?

Does the top of the screw cap have a pointy thing on it? If not, maybe a straight pin?

Nope!  No pointy thing on the cap (and it's a small jar about 1" across).  I ended up using a butter knife & wearing gloves.


My wife tried to separate frozen biscuits (American) with a butter knife. Once.

Thirteen stitches, and our hallway looked like someone had filmed a bad slasher movie in our house.

Glad your experience was more successful. :)

A green stinkbug got into the house by hiding in the laundry.  Once it gets lower than the top of the curtains I'll try to put it back outside, b/c I doubt the cats are going to be any help.


It could be worse.  At least the house isn't a skunk magnet like the house of one of our former staff members.
For our light affliction, which is only for a moment, works for us a far greater and eternal weight of glory.  We look not at the things we can see, but at those we can't.  For the things we can see are temporary, but those we can't see are eternal.
