Thought for the Day

I'm not really sure I deserve Gatorade if I can't unscrew the lid. Seriously, I have to use either the hired muscle of my husband or a rubber thingy that I also use to unscrew jars of spaghetti sauce. Gatorade is for athletes, so how much of an athlete am I if I don't have the strength to open the bottle? Am I alone on this?

*psst* Blame your sweaty palms...

That's how my fiance gets away with it.

I totally agree! Not only can I not open gatorade, but when I try the sharp ridges on the cap make my efforts even more futile and painful. What is up with that?

You would think Gatorade and water bottles would be easy since by the time you open them, you are either in motion or so weak that you can barely lift the bottle, much less twist a cap!

Gatorade bottles don't open for me half of the time. That's when I ask for help.

Jods always has to help me open mine. They should make them like the caps on arthritis meds...ez open! I think one could even count it as strength training.

Ya' know what? I struggle with that sometimes too! Maybe we're sweaty when trying to take it off? But usually when I get it off it spills all over me. (This sounds bad if you are just reading my comment! Yikes!!)

I don't really care for gatorade... I like powerade! Maybe that will give you more "power"!!!

How true! I actually ripped the skin off of one of my fingers one day opening a bottle - it took my a good week to figure out how I did it. :) But, you've gotta admit, once it's open, it was so worth it.

Don't worry you are not alone I have the same problem, but do much better with propel bottles

DUDE!!! the SAME thing happens to me! i had to ask my 60 year old MOM to open the last bottle for me!

I think we need to start a gatorade support group. I'm with you on this one, Jess!

My boyfriend has to open all of the Gatorade bottles for me at the beginning of the week.

I thought I was the only one that had this problem.
