We’ve reached day 4 of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and I’m still here, but man, I could use a drink. Fortunately, as I look around me in the cave, I see plenty of cups and glasses to hold the drink of choice. Let’s take a closer look at a few examples…
This Planet of the Apes cup would have been my favorite cup for watching Saturday morning cartoons back in the day.
For a kid with a Hulk-sized thirst is this plastic Hulk cup from 1977.
I have a few different Batman cups in the collection. There are other designs out there, and the hunt is definitely on!
Alright, this might not be a cup, but I can’t think of anything better to go in a kid’s cup than Superman Hot Cocoa — with NutraSwet!
When you gotta go to school, you need a cool lunch box and matching thermos — NOTHING beats the 1966 Batman thermos in my book.
But then again, this Planet of the Apes thermos is pretty sweet too.
For a tall glass of soda, what could be better than a Burger King Star Wars glass?
Okay, I may be a little biased but I like to sip my iced tea from this tall Batman Pepsi glass.
Speaking of soda, check out these cool Halo 3 and 4 Mountain Dew cans. After several of the cans exploded in the case, I learned that emptying soda cans before storing them away is preferred!
After a long day at the office, King Kong and I spend some quality time together. I really would have loved to be in on the meeting at Jim Beam headquarters when they determined this was a good idea for a whiskey decanter. Sheer. Genius.
All of these drinking cups and glasses come together to form an unintended collection when presented as a whole. I never set up to collect drinking vessels, but when you acquire enough stuff, these strange sub-collections magically form, and I think that’s kind of great. Have you ever realized you had an accidental collection?
Day 4 of the A-to-Z Challenge is done! Yesterday, we covered C is for Cars and today was all about drinking — not necessarily the best pairing. Check back tomorrow to see how it all turns out with our friend, the letter “E.”
