Amy picked up the blue bottle on the table, ignoring its scrappier counterparts. Swirls of lighter color and the slight uneven curve at the bottle's neck gave it a handmade quality. Several loops of dark ribbon, adorned with buttons and other bobs, circled the neck in a manner not unlike a necklace. When Amy looked at a lantern through the bottle, she could see that it contained a viscous gas which seemed to glitter a bit as it oozed about the container. The cork stopper glittered a bit as well. Amy found herself at once both curious and uncertain about the possibility of pulling the cork.
What should she do?

When I attended summer camp one of my favorite camp friends used to sing a song called Blue Bottle. This is the refrain:
I have a little present here for you
Inside this tiny bottle, so very small and blue
Please do not uncork it, simply put it on away.
For inside there lies a summer's day.
Put it on away...
