Such a delicate flower…

It *really* annoys me that I can’t open a standard 16oz soda bottle without assistance from the jar-opener thingy (or a boy, which in this case works out to be roughly the same thing).

It hurts! It’s not that I’m not strong enough (I am plenty strong), it’s that the little ridge-y things on the cap hurt my hands. (Ok, maybe I’m a wuss). Have they made them harder open so that they’re more thoroughly “Sealed for My Protection”?

(And don’t even get me started on “twist-off” beer caps.)

  1. May I suggest wrist/forearm exercisers? I started uing one when I was waiting for compiles, and now I have popeye forearms. I hurt my skin before I run out of lid torque now.
    And I’m still a delecate flower :-)

      It’s not the strength… it’s that the skin of my little hands hurts! I’ve got plenty of muscle (witness the fact I can open them easily when hands are pretected by little rubber jar-opener-thingie), but when I grip the little cap, the little ridges *hurt*.
      I’ve actually torn the skin of my palm on a (normal) twist-off bottlecap. (Then opened sucessfull & without injury by someone else).

  2. too much exfoliant on your hands? :-)
    Hey, why doesn’t LiveJournal have an option for non-anonymous posts from non-LiveJournal users?
    Just curiously yours,

      Actually that’s a user preference you can toggle. It seems like there are people who have nothing better to do that leave offensive/obcene comments in random ppl’s journals. A lot of people who were runnign Movable Type (I think that was it) had to turn off their comments a couple of months back because someone went on a spree.
