How many drinking glasses do two people need?
Need? The answer would be two….but the reality?
Four champagne glasses
Three red wine glasses. …originally four
One XL burgundy glass
Two souvenir wine glasses
Style1 Three glasses. …originally four
Style2 Three glasses. …originally eight
Style3 Three glasses. …originally six
Style4 Two small glasses. …originally four
Style5 Two juice glasses. ….originally four
StyleA Six stainless steel glasses
StyleB one stainless steel glass
And I’m not even going to mention the four matched mugs, and six assorted souvenir tea/coffee mugs
Oops i just mentioned it.
Wow…37 drinking tools for two peeps.
Why so many? Here’s how the inner dialogue between my reluctance and discipline went:
Whiny Me: But what will I serve people drink in?
Strict Me: The most you hosted in a dinner party was 13 and that was five years ago!
And you used disposable cups/plates then.
Whiny Me: But I like to have different glasses for different drinks!
Strict Me: But you only drink water most of the time, and occasionally fresh juices or smoothies.
You gave up alcohol at the start of 2012 so what’s with the wine glasses?
And champagne glasses, really…you never liked bubbles and have never bought champagne!
Whiny Me: Oh but, wine glasses make awesome parfait cups.
Strict Me: Yes, but you have all those glass bowls remember?
Whiny Me: Ok, ok, but what if I have people over, like the family…I’d need eight glasses.
Strict Me: Yes, but you have 27.
Whiny Me: Fine, I will get rid of some of the ones I don’t use.
Strict Me: Good. Say, why do you have so many sets of threes?
Whiny Me: Umm, darling hubby tends to have butterfingers around glasses and breaks one every few months.
Strict Me: So maybe get rid of all the glass made glasses and keep the stainless steel, you can get one more steel glass to have a set of eight. Stainless steel takes up less room ’cause it all stacks in the same area as one glass.
Whiny Me: Ugh! Fine! You win. No more glass drinking glasses.
Strict Me: Good.
Petulant Me: I’m not getting rid of any mugs though.
Strict Me: Not even the ones with the logo from the college career fairs and that faded souvenir picture one?
Whiny Me: Alright just those ones, but I keep all the pretty ones – my set of four and my special gorgeous tea mug and my smoothie mug.
Strict Me: Suit yourself, next year we will see how many times you had tea in it.
New Total: 7 steel glasses + 6 mugs = 13
