FOWC with Fandango — Bottle

Some people have enough bottle to follow through on their dreams, no matter what obstacles are put in their way.
I remember a party game called ‘ Spin the bottle’. It was a favourite at our childhood parties, but took on a whole new meaning when the adults played!
Bottle necks are a pain when you’re stuck in traffic and there is no alternative route.
I remember with fondness a song about bottles. There were ten and they were all green. Sadly, none of them survived.
How I wish pharmacies would bring back the little medicine bottles for your pills. I could cope with the childproof caps, but some of these ‘push to release’ blister packs are a swine!
Mustn’t forget the 1/3 pint bottles of milk we had at school and the daily pinta delivered to your door. Somehow cartons don’t have the same panache.
Finally for my contribution, I always wondered how they got the ship in a bottle. All was revealed in the movie ‘The Good Shepherd’ starring Matt Damon which was nothing to do with bottles and ships.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
