My husband asked why we had so many dirty cups. In one day we went through just about every cup we own.

I blamed the cat. It seems on certain days every time I turn around the cat is lapping up water from my cup. I don’t share water with my cat, so I had to get a new cup each time.

Exasperated my husband asked why I don’t use a glass with a lid.  "I don’t like the taste of water after it’s been in the metal tumbler or the plastic cups with lids."

Thankfully he remembered a place that had ceramic ones. We found one at Barnes and Noble and I now have a lovely ceramic cup with a lid.


And the cat no longer drinks my water.

Can you think of one irritation, problem, or annoyance? Can you think of a few ways that might solve it?
