Today was kind of a long day, as I tried to catch up on pretty much everything (work, errands, groceries, random phonecalls that needed returning) all at the same time, all whie thinking "wasn't I going to try to be all Zen and 'do one thing at a time' this year?"
I promised that I would not cop out and just post pictures this year, but I do have a lot of pictures in my phone, so I will share one of them with you and write some words to go with it. That's ok, right?
This is a photo of what Costco calls a "break resistant" wine glass. Fine, whatever, I could probably use a glass like this because I tend to break alot of things (see above reference to 'doing too many things at the same time'), but the thing I find so funny about this is that Costco chooses to display ONE glass that they hail as "break resistant."
Um.....how many times a day do you think they have to replace that glass? How many boneheads walk by, see that sign, and, totally unable to control themselves, just SMASH THAT GLASS ON THE FLOOR TO SEE IF IT BREAKS?
That is certainly what I want to do every single time I see it. I can stop myself from grabbing it by just taking a picture and laughing, but I can imagine that several times a day (at least), someone has to just see what Costo REALLY means by "break resistant." Do they mean, like, if you step on it? What if you just smash it down on the ground with all your might? Can you run over it with a car? What about kicking it? How about if you smash it against metal? What about someone's head? Can you go all cartoon with it and just start bashing two of them together?
I'm pretty sure they mean "if it slips out of your hand while you're holding it, it might not shatter into a million tiny shards that will hurt your feet if you step on them," but I find it funny to consider the various possiilities offered by the word "resistant." It does say that it's titanium reinforced, which I think is even funnier. Can you run over it with a tank? Why would you be drinking wine in a situation involving being run over by a tank? If you're at risk of being run over by a tank, can I recommend that you run for your life instead of stopping to enjoy a nice pinot noir?
I'm. Just. Saying. Don't leave the wine glass sitting there if you are not serious about the term "break resistant."
