Man, I’d sure like to visit the south.  This makes me think of sweet tea.  I don’t know what sweet tea is exactly (Canadian, what are you gonna do?), but I’d always wanted to visit the south and drink sweet tea from something like that.

What’s a good place to go in the south?  North Carolina?  Is north Carolina the real south, or is that too far north?

You read my mind.. I had never heard of them! They’re kind of funny looking to me… but I’m just used to plain glasses, you know like this: 

Well, that or ugly plastic glasses that everyone seems to have a million of!

hmmm i’ve never heard of those.  I personally can’t stand drinking out of plastic drinkware, (tumblers).  I hate the feeling in my mouth.  I prefer to drink only from glasses.

We have those!  With a fleur-de-lis on them.  I can’t wait for us to have a whole set of matching glasses…made of glass.

LOL- I didn’t realize this was a wedding registry item so much as a movin to the old folks home item… The reason why people like them is because they don’t sweat! so your glass isnt all wet in the heat of the south!! Personally not a fan, they’re too big for me to hold comfortably in my hand and I am fairly certain that plastic will kill me.

That’s so funny.

@cbqq – it’s funny that you say you don’t know what sweet tea is because you’re Canadian.  I went to Los Angeles and ordered an iced tea, and just about choked because it was just tea.  Apparently we always drink sweet tea here, although I think it’s less authentic up here.

Haha Labor of Love- I hate them no offense taken.  They came with SO.

I can’t wait to be rid of them.
