The last of my Coke glasses bit the dust this week. Victim of an over enthusiastic, badly stacked dishwasher.
I bought four when we arrived in America, with not a cup, glass, plate or spoon to our name...and only three weeks before Christmas...when the snow lay thick on the ground...
ooo - I think I hear violins
But as it happened our luck was in. As you all well know EVERYTHINGgoes on sale before Christmas in America. This was the first indication I had that I was truly in a crazy foreign land. In Britain, we tend to leave our sales until January...or Boxing Day at the very least. When no-one has any money left...
hmmm...I'm beginning to see the light
So as my Dollar Store glasses have now served nearly thirteen years, I think they have earned the honor of being immortalized in charcoal.
