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.

Written for Fandango’s One Word Challenge today.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
