99 Word Prompt: Bottleneck

August 30: Flash Fiction Challenge

THE BOTTLE OPENER

A party goer grabbed a longneck bottle of ale from an ice chest and searched around.  “Anyone know where the bottle opener is?”

“I got this,” another party goer said as he picked up another beer bottle.  “Now give me yours.”

The first party goer handed him his bottle, then the second party goer held his bottle upside down  and placed the edge of its bottlecap against the other bottlecap.  “A little trick I learned in college, using one bottle to open another.”

A cap popped off and beer spilled all over his pants.

“Ooops, wrong cap came off.”
