This bottle opener. Here’s the story: when Bossy was on her 14,000-mile, six-week (No) Book Tour this past spring, she met a member of Bossy’s council in San Diego who gave Bossy this homemade bottle opener. Turns out the thing was made by her father — a doctor and a character.
Here’s how it works:
Bossy adores that he thought to improve on the many available factory-issued bottle openers — and in fact his design not only makes for the perfect cap-flipping leverage, but the handle is quite ergonomic!
And also the thing looks like it could be the sweetest animated character:
Bossy was so very sad to learn this father of a Bossy reader, this doctor, this character and inventor of bottle-openers, passed away this summer. Bossy will always be honored to own one of his masterpieces, and will think of him and his family whenever someone cracks open a beer. And that’s a whole lot.
