Okay, so the other day, I mentioned I had a specific cup from whence I enjoy my ice water - even 3Carnations asked about it.
And I'm here to tell you: the cup exists!
I searched high and low for this cup:
It's an orange plastic insulated cup. I like it because:
1. It doesn't "sweat" (i.e. get condensation on the outside, threatening to leave a water ring on wood furniture).
2. It holds a good amount of water and ice.
3. It fits under the ice/water maker on the fridge.
I've had it for years. At least a decade, so I hope nothing happens to it. Shit, I should try to find a couple more now!
Plus, it's a real dilemma for me when it does have to spend time in the dishwasher.
At those times, I'll usually just drink out of the bottled waters we keep in the fridge. I keep those around for times I'm on the run - I like to have water with me at all times. COLD water. With the bottles, I can just throw one in my purse and run my errands.
But, if I'm at home - I have my trusty orange cup. I fill it with lots of ice and then water. I can drink about 4 of them before The Evil Twin even leaves for work (I get up at 6:30 AM and he leaves around 7:30 AM).
I don't like to drink out of glass glasses if I can help it. I think they smell weird.
I have an unusual sense of smell - I won't buy paper towel with patterns on them. I only buy plain white, because if they get wet (and let's face it, they're paper towels and usually used to wipe up wet spills), I can smell the dyes and it turns my stomach.
I'm like "Pee-U" while I hold my nose and make a face. It's the same thing with glasses of ice water.
It's 7:06 and I'm on my third cup of water in my orange cup!
