And not one that someone would typically celebrate. No, the milestone that I reached today was the one where I finally could not open a jar of salsa. So I tried a different jar because I’m sitting here on bread baking day watching “Master and Commander” on HBO and salsa and chips sounded pretty good to me. The second jar didn’t open either. So we tried the third and final jar it the seal finally gave way.
My fingers hurt from trying but not as much as my ego. Yeh, that’s slightly more than bruised right now. The fingers hurt from a tab bit of arthritis that developed from the sins of my youth. I can take a little Ibuprofen for that and they’ll feel much better soon. There’s not much that I can take for the ol’ ego lest it be a bit of rum or maybe some wine later on for my supper.
I went to Amazon and ordered a good jar opener. Such is life I guess.
