I managed to get the cork halfway out of the bottle before the lever slipped off the lip, resulting in the cork splitting into pieces and the bottle nearly falling to the ground as the corkscrew slammed into my right hand. After counting my fingers to make sure I hadn't lost any, I grabbed a steak knife—yes, a steak knife yet again—to push the remaining third or so of the cork into the bottle.

And finally, accomplishing a task is just as difficult if you don't know how to use the tools properly....
