For the most part, I think it's fine. Pint glasses hold a lot of water, are fairly sturdy, and if they break, it isn't a huge deal (unless it's one of Jesse's beloved ones). But a few weeks ago, my 90 year old grandmother-in-law came to visit and asked for a glass of water. Imagine my horror when I had to choose between offering her a Kenny Powers glass or a Albino Rhino Beer glass.
So I recently headed out to shop around for some reasonably priced glasses. Jesse and I registered for glasses when we got married but nobody bought them. Which is fine. We probably would have broken them by now anyway, and then I'd feel terrible. Is anybody else extra protective of their registry items? We actually received a set of fancy-pants, hand-painted, very-thin-glass glasses, but whenever we use them, I end up giving the stink eye to anybody who looks like they're having too much fun while holding one. Better to grab some without any emotional attachments for day to day use. I am crazy, by the way.
After some searching, I found these bad boys at Target. Inexpensive? Check. Non-offensive looking? Check. Not worth crying over if broken? Check.
Behold our upgraded glass shelf. There are still a few of our favorite beer glasses, but the other half is taken over by SENSIBLE ADULT GLASSWARE. The pint glasses that didn't make the cut have been boxed up in case any siblings o'mine want them for their new apartments.
Are you still rocking pint glasses, frat-house style? Or have you graduated, like me, to a mostly matching set? Stay hydrated and stay homey!
