I went to go get myself a glass of water. I opened the cupboard. I realized…none of my favorite blue plastic cups were clean. Big. 16 oz plastic. Opaque. I just love having my ice cold water from these dollar store beauts.
Sadly, they were all sitting in the dishwasher, ready to be sanitized and cleaned.
All that was left and ready to use in the cupboard.
All nicely and precisely lined up and put away. Our nice, tall drinking glasses. Made of…glass. See through. Smudgy.
And for some strange reason, I’d rather die of thirst than drink ANYTHING from glass glasses.
Except wine glasses. But those…are crystal.
Yeah. I know.
No wonder my psychologist enjoys our sessions.
You are now officially WEIRD. I am completely opposite in this regard. I hate drinking water out of plastic glasses and LOVE doing so out of truly glass glasses. I’m picky about them, though.
Hey, guess what! MomZombie and I are meeting up at the Detroit Zoo this afternoon for a playdate! Woohoo!
I like all my items to face forward so I can see their front (labels). For example, if I go into the bathroom and my lotion bottle is turned around, I’ll turn it back to face me. It’s strange, I know. I mean, I’m not OBSESSED about it – like it’s not “Sleeping With The Enemy” bad, but it’s there.
So what do you do when you’re out somewhere?
Um…I have the same exact problem. I feel like if I drink out of glass I will see things, smudges, floaties, etc. I just can’t force myself to do it.
but that is way quirkier than me.
is quirkier a word?
hey, I still haven’t seen my cd or ipod thingy… 🙁

Or, have cereal out of anything but my favorite cereal bowl???
I think I have the exact blue cups you speak of.
And mine are clean.
This is because I drink my iced coffee out of my iced coffee cup (aka HUGE), my water/ gatorade out of the purple plastic cups (because glasses get smudgy and that gets weird to think about and then I can’t drink anymore.)
Or if we’re talking alcohol I skip right over the middle man and drink from the bottle.
Now you know why *my* shrink enjoys me. (ca-ching!)

And this is why we LOVE you!! At least you are not like me and can only get out of the shower on the left side….quirky for sure!

Oddly enough, that makes PERFECT sense to me! We have a ton of pint beer glasses from my husband’s previous jobs. They are perfect for soda and beer and maybe a huge glass of juice or milk but I REFUSE to drink water out of them! I have these giant red and green plastic cups from Wal-Mart that I paid 1.00 for three of them and I LOVE THEM! That’s what I drink my water from.
Listen to me clap. I understand your quirkiness and applaud it. Only drink from the plastic cups that you like.
I would really like a crystal container full of wine right now.
The only reason we drink our water out of plastic cups around our house is because every bloody glass is broken. I decided to end the cycle of madness. I was buying shiny, pretty new glass drinking glasses and one by one they fell and shattered, sending dangerous shards all over the kitchen floor. Then I would buy more and the same thing would happen. Finally I got over my aversion to drinking from a plastic cup and just gave in. No more bloody toes. I don’t like those smudges and specks on glass, either.
I can not drink out of plastic cups. *SHUDDER*
I think it is a combination of the texture and the smell. My mother in law, however, bought us a set of acrylic glasses that are the shit. No weird smell, they are hard like glass AND unbreakable.

Are you kidding? That’s so normal..right?? I have 2 or 3 cups that I rotate between, and will wash them by hand if none of them are clean when I need one. They are all ugly too. LOL.
I am the exact same way….cut my wrists before you force me to drink from glasses…plastic all the way for me. Love the tumblers 4 for $2 you can get at Walmart.
