Retro Flashback

Anyone ever see these cool aluminum tumblers before? I thought about them the other day. I asked Joe to get me a glass of cold water. He pulled out a plastic cup and then self-corrected and got out a glass.

"Why do you always want your water in a glass?" he asked me.

Then I realized that I do prefer water (any beverage, really, but especially water and milk) in a glass. "Actually, metal is even better, I told him."

I remember my Grandpa Christoph stating it, "Always drink a cold drink in glass or metal."

He was absolutely right. And, thanks to retro-ism, these aluminum tumblers (and pitchers and dessert bowls) are available again, even on Amazon.com. I may just have to put them on my birthday list.
