Well, I'm feeling pretty stupid right about now.

A few years back I bought a set of kitchen utensils. It had probably 100 pieces at least. There were serving spoons and slotted spoons, a ladle, a pancake-flipping type spatula or two, a scrape-the-stuff-out-of-the-jar type spatula or two, a whisk, measuring cups, measuring spoons, tongs....and this thing. 




It's like a bulb-less flashlight.


Now, it's no secret that I'm no cook. Most of the utensils in that set have only been used a few times over the years, but this one was never even touched because I figured it was for some kind of really advanced recipes. 

Then yesterday, it caught my eye, so I picked it up and REALLY looked at it. And look what I figured out....





It's like a Transformer, but instead of turning into a robot it turns into something TRULY useful.


That's right. Your dear friend and wine aficionado Shelley has unknowingly had a corkscrew hiding in plain sight in her kitchen drawer FOR YEARS. 


I feel so stupid, and strangely guilty for judging a book by its cover (or a utensil by its odd shape), but I take comfort in knowing that at least my Transformer corkscrew has had company while he waited for me to discover the beauty he carries within. 


 Alien and Angel welcome Transformer to the drawer with open arms.

  1. If it makes you feel better, I would have guessed that that thing was some sort of sex toy before I'd have ever guessed it was a corkscrew.

    1. That does actually make me feel better. Especially because I've never bought a combination kitchen utensil/sex toy set, and I'm pretty sure those two things should NEVER go together because EWWW.

  2. I have the same corkscrew in my drawer but it is a semi transparent orange plastic so it wasn't nearly as sneaky.

    1. You'd think they'd make wine-related products with obvious labels, because well, drinkers sometimes need it spelled out for us because we've been drinking.

  3. I recognized what it was immediately......does that make me smart or just a heavy wine drinker?
