Woozy Wednesday: Can vs Bottle

It’s a face-off. We have been having incredibly beautiful weather here so it was time to break out the Coronas but we had to buy them in cans as we were headed to the park for a picnic and didn’t have bottle openers with us.

(Funny story: I was once in Wendel’s probably buying a mocha and an avocado chicken wrap and when I went to pay for my stuff,  a beer bottle cap and a tampon came flying out of my purse and landed on the counter in front of me.)

But anyway, the cans were fine for the picnic but bottles are just where it’s at. I sliced up some limes and stuck them into the drinks but only Andrew’s lime stayed snug in his bottle (TWSS) whereas mine kept popping out into my mouth (WHAT KIND OF SICK BLOG IS THIS?!).


Oopsiedoodles! A little spill…


Let’s try this out, shall we?


Oh that’s the spot right there!



The verdict is in: Bottles are best for taste, for experience, for authenticity. Cans are best for picnics where you can’t find your set of keys with the attached bottle opener. And cans go well with cake and egg salad sandwiches and bikinis and sand and butt cracks and public washrooms that smell like industrial cleaner and alcohol-induced diarrhea.

      It’s just a cooler experience. Way. If I’m holding a can I feel like I should be wearing a crop top that smells like sweat and dirty hair.

    Bottles for sure…. except for last weekend when I was at a pool party and someone broke a bottle that led to about 15 people stepping on glass and cutting their feet… blood everywhere. I didn’t believe that you actually bleed a lot more when you’re drunk until I witnessed that accident.

    Now if only they would invent wine in a can… that might change my perspective.

      Okay, whoa. You are ON to something here. Wine in a can?!?!? YES!!! Then I can actually use my travel mugs for coffee once in a while!

    Nothing beats a glass for beer. Not sure what happens…it just opens the beer flavours up more. That being said, I will drink it in a bottle or in a can or with a woman or with a man. I will drink beer with a goat. I will drink it on a boat. I will drink it with a lime. I will call it Miller Time. I will drink beer here or there. I will drink it anywhere.
    Cans are cool because there is a huge selection of imports in the cans and they come in tall boys. If I buy a six pack of tall boys I can still say I only had six but really it was more like 8-1/2 or something.

      Okay I hear what you’re saying about drinking it out of a glass but whenever I do that I end up dribbling it all down my chin and spilling it on my shirt. Nice rhyming, by the way. I can’t even believe you’re that talented. That’s the problem with being Canadian is it’s so hard for us to get discovered and then disgustingly famous. It’s really not fair. And you KNOW I’m too busy looking at my own “six pack” of tall boys to be looking at you. I don’t judge–I join it.

    And now I need a drink. I think I shall pour it into a glass!! Third option; mind blown!

      I know, I’m getting quite thirsty too. 🙂
