A work of art.
A stroke of Genuis.
A person should definitely "write for their readers".
It's a fact.
With that thought in mind today's post is about "SIPPY CUPS". What? You don't find the subject fascinating? Please hear me out, after all, what fun is it to rant if no one's listening?
Lately I've invested BIG bucks ($$) in all types, styles, and models of SIPPY CUPS. (Sorry, but I can't even say the words, SIPPY CUP without shouting.) It was so much simpler when my kids were little. There were very few SIPPY CUPS at that time and the ones available were simple- a plastic cup with handles which had a lid with a small slit in it to drink from. Have you looked at SIPPY CUPS lately? They're complicated and have numerous parts and most include a straw of some type along with all sorts of colorful lids/tops. Trouble is after one use it's necessary to disassemble the cup, clean it well, then put it all back together again (think "Rubic's cube"), at which time it's supposed to be usable again.
You don't want to know how much time I've spent cleaning these things, searching for lost straws, and trying to figure out why it's not working the second time out. I've also searched in stores and on-line trying to find replacement straws cause heaven only knows not just any ol' straw will work. Noooooo, you must have a particular type of straw that only fits that manufacturer's brand of SIPPY CUP.
and I may have gloated,
strutted and sang my own praise for a while.
It was glorious!
Perhaps I need to patent this idea (?).
I'm getting a little carried away.
Later Lil' Mama came home from school and I did what normal people do in such a situation. . .
I went shopping and bought 6 more new cups.
Which is probably why God
intended that menopausal women
