So I got this lovely set of dishes for Christmas the other day. They were at H.E.B., the local grocery store, but I thought they were nice, and I don't have any Christmas dishes, so I got them. What I didn't realize was, there are no cups in this set. Look at that on the box, because I did not notice it when I was buying them. It's a 12-piece set. Four dinner plates, four dessert plates, and four bowls. What? No cup and saucer? Not even a mug. Nothing to drink from. Yes, I know, there are goblets out there, and I have some, and there is crystal, and I love that as well. And Christmas is eggnog time, served from a punch bowl and cup (is punch bowl one word or two?) but I like tea, and I like to drink tea from a cup and saucer. Dang it! Now you know good and well, I will not take those dishes back, I will use them. But they should have some kind of a cup with them, shouldn't they? Yeesh!
