Two hundred Smackerooos vanished

We had 4 of these glasses, which cost $200 apiece and no I didn't buy
them. Now we have 3. No, I didn't break it. And I won't tattle.
But, it seems like a bit of a waste. Not that other money hasn't gone
that way, too.

Holy crap. Too bad it got broken, but I would've been too scared to even use it.

BB puts them out when we have company and BB washes them. I don't touch them except to drink my water carefully.

I'm with you all -- I'd be terrified of such an object. How could one get pleasure from something like that? I broke a crystal glass with a real gold rim that SodaBoy's parents gave us, and that sucked, but luckily I don't know the true value. I still felt bad though. He used it, and he washed it. I was getting something else out of the dish drainer and it fell out the side -- it was one of those short, fat boozy glasses, and it went right between the slats of the drainer. Phooey is what I say.

Phooey is what I say, too! AK!

I am reading great expectations and have just come to the part where Pip is told he will receive great expectations and be educated as a gentleman and he is feeling both eager and very sad to be leaving the people he loves. And I can't help thinking he might be better off with them than as a "gentleman."

No spoilers, though!
