Give Us This Day, Our Daily Cup
Have you ever found a sipee cup under the couch? Or the driver's seat of your car? Have you ever thought to yourself, "Hmmm. I think this is the cup of juice I gave the kid five minutes ago"? But you weren't really sure. A quick sniff and visual inspection revealed no fermentation, coagulation, or growth of any kind, so back in the kids mouth it went?
No? Well, you are a better mother than I am. The truth is, I have three kids wandering around with cups. There is only so much I can keep a lid on. Ha ha. Keep a lid on. Get it?
That was until the great cup epiphany of ought seven. Label cups with name and date. Never again will Jonah drink out of Sam's cup from two weeks ago. Well, I can't promise never, but at least I won't hand it to him and say, "Here, drink this."
