We got gifted with a lovely pack of  Minute Maid juice this Sunday and had a hell of a time opening it up. See the thing is, we (my cousin and I) are not used to this fancy stuff. And not just because we are always broke… wait, that’s actually it. We cannot afford this shit. So when I tried opening I just twisted the cap with click click click but nothing was happening. I had to call people to ask what I was doing wrong. We were told to twist until the clicking stopped and the cap came off. But then we found a seal and we were confused. I called back.

“The seal was meant to be broken as the cap came off. That was what the clicks meant. ”

“So now that the juice is still unbroken and the cap off, what next”

“You are on your own.”

We decided to try out what we thought was the right way before giving up and doing it the Mau Mau way. At the end of it all, it was clear that this was not a Minute Maid. It was a HalfHour Maid.

Seal still virgin
We twist the cap off only to find the foil still virgin. We had been told that twisting the cap off breaks the seal so obviously we were now confused. Did we twist it wrong? Were we meant to twisting while pushing down? So many questions.

 

We figured that the bit that was on the rim was meant to be out so we tried prying it out. In retrospect we could have used the scissors to rape the seal open but I guess we desperately wanted to open it the way it was supposed

Finally we give in and decide to open it like we do milk. Ripping the top open with our bare fingers. But then my cousin broke his finger because of the hard juice pack. LOL, JK, he's a dark skinned nigga. Nothing can break him

We decided to fuck the rules and just do it the best way we knew how. The way we opened them back before the invention of caps on carton packs. We sliced that bitch up.

After 23 minutes of trials and strugglations we finally get to quench our thirst. FYI it was not worth it, it doesnt taste as great as the mango apple flavour that comes in plastic bottles.
