If I were a bottle opener, where would I be?



Necessity...the mother of invention.

Frickin' classic. Russell-nothing but respect! Giampaolo (being the engineer that he is) had one minor suggestion. He reflected that if you were having a tailgate party the 'thing' wouldn't be easily accessible. He recommends relocation to the outside left of the bumper.....

"If I were a bottle opener"???
Isnt' it "If I WAS a bottle opener"?
That must be why I win at scrabble...

Actually, it looks like both forms are correct...

"The subjunctive mood, always weak in English, has been dwindling away for centuries until it has almost vanished. According to traditional thought, statements about the conditional future such as “If I were a carpenter . . .” require the subjunctive “were’; but “was” is certainly much more common. "

...kin English!

Well, I apoligize, but I still win at scrabble...

Your second language-challenging my first, absolutely no apology necessary. However, publicly broadcasting your scrabble superiority (and simultaneously my defeat) will cost you dearly. I’m still working on the price...

By the way, I can send you a photo of what that bottle opener really can do.
