$399 – not a toy

December 27th, 2017 ·1 Comment

I clicked on a link to decorative items and took a close look at TWO wine glasses .

The description of the glasses designed by Steven Weinberg reads:

Make your dining experience a memorable one with this set of two modern and sophisticated white wine glasses. Their stems are filled with clear crystals for a sparkling effect and the base is made of a large faceted clear crystal. Not a toy. Not suitable for children under 15.

I thought paying $1.99 for an acrylic stemmed glass at WalMart was excessive and so I didn’t. Two would have been almost four dollars. Oh, the 2 for $399 ones are really lovely, but I’m clumsier than a 15 year old.

    While my parents started serving us wine at Sunday dinner around age 10 I was a bit flabbergasted by the “not suitable for children under age 15” line. You just don’t see that very often. I mean, not suitable for children you see, and not suitable for those under the age of 3, maybe even an 8+ lablel, but 15? Such an odd number.

    And yes, we really did get wine at 10 or so. Not that any of us really liked it all that much but I’m pretty sure that we were the only kids being confirmed in the Lutheran church (that used real wine for communion) age age 14 that didn’t gag when we got the cup of wine…. maybe that was the reason. But then Dad did give the pastor beer whenever he came to visit too, you can’t have a good German Lutheran pastor and not give him good beer he would always say.
