We bought these new bottles for oil and vinegar that let you drizzle the oil….it’s so I eat more salad, but anyway. They’ve sat on my counter for a week until finally I felt like filling them with oil and vinegar. Because Ron replied to my email so I felt better so I started pouring. The oil is in a big bottle it’s olive oil and I pour so slowly, and it’s pretty, it’s pouring in, then I think, maybe it’s enough so I stop but, then, what happens is the oil spills over the side of the bottle
You stupid bitch!
I’m sorry I didn’t mean to I was trying….
Wait, OK. It’s fine. It’s OK. We’re trying something different, pouring, no one is perfect at everything all the time. It’s fine. See, we can wipe it off. Looks like we need a bit more.
Oh, OK. I am so sad I spilled the oil but anyway. We can pour a bit more OK. So I start pouring some more, and it’s a pretty good feeling, and we get it filled pretty full, and then stop, and it spills a bit again, but it’s OK because we can wipe the bottle with some dish soap so it’s good.
So then I do the vinegar bottle too. It doesn’t spill because maybe I’ve gotten better with the pouring or maybe vinegar isn’t as spilly. So now we have oil and we have vinegar and we can drizzle it and we can eat lots of salad!
