my favourite Kilkenny glass angry

I was rinsing it out and then decided to shake out the extra water with one good whap! ...right onto a mug that was sitting in the sink.

Bugger.
We had a BBQ on the weekend, and 2 of my favourite white wine glasses were smashered. Now I need to get new glasses.

These were nice ones, prolly nowhere near as nice as your Kilkenny glass though.

Le sigh.

You have my sympathy. As someone who has done this a few times in my life, I know how you feel. I break more favorite mugs, glasses and steins than regular ones...

I don't use my favorite mug. I'm so clumsy I don't use things that I don't want to break. Feel your pain.

I had a favorite mug I got form a dollar store 20 years ago when I was 8. Seven years later, when I was 15, I knocked it off my computer desk, as I reached for it to get another swig of mountain dew, and broke it . After that every thrift store I went into I checked the glasses section to see if they had one like it. Well after 12 years of searching I found one just last year! It was the happiest day of my life. Unless my wife reads this then It would be the second happiest day of my life, or when my son gets old enough to read this it will be my 3rd happiest day of my life. (But I think we all know where it stands in the rankings ninja )

Moral of the story? Go to your local thrift store.

I've got a case of 16oz steins, and a set of 16oz rocks glasses that are all "bar quality"; so they're a bit hard to break....and I haven't broken one yet!

My friends dropped two shot glasses down my garbage disposal last week... That's the worst that I've got... They also put dirty dishes in my dishwasher along with the clean batch, so I had to wash them all again. Moral: Never let your well-intentioned but drunk friends near your dishes.

We've given up on having nice glasses because we are so clumsy! My husband has this collection of beer glasses for his favorite beers, but hardly ever uses them. He's afraid he'll break them!

We didn't even make it through the holidays without breaking stuff. When we are home alone, it is plastic all the way!

I changed the cached queries from 100 to 25 (on the vendor's suggestion) and that made my servers very, angry.

Didn't you know that anything which can be collected has probably been named somewhere along the way. Not that most of us ever hear of any of these names, of course.
