I'm suddenly very worried about my use of the "object" in my story: While writing, it seemed obvious to me that if a character is swigging from a beer, then the required object of "beer bottle" was being used. Now, after reading other stories, I'm worried I wasn't specific enough about the object. To be acceptable, does a story need to use the actual phrase, "beer bottle? Is this grounds for disqualification? I worked so hard on my story and I hope that there's some leeway with this.

I had same concern last round - I called my object a brush instead of a hairbrush. I thought I would be disqualified but it earned 15 points. I think you'll be fine.
