Dastardly Dropsies

A couple weeks ago, I had an unfortunate bout of the “dropsies.” No, not dropsy as in the old word once commonly used for edema (swelling), rather the colloquial kind whereupon you clumsily drop everything you touch. Sadly, two of my favorite pieces of kitchenware met their fate in as many days.

The first to swim among its brethren was my beloved Pisces coffee cup from, heck, at least my teenage years. The next day, my garlic dish for grating fresh garlic with no risk to the knuckles and easy-peasy cleanup. Both, gifts from Mom.

The front of the mug says “The Fishes” on the top piece, Pisces at the base. Here’s what the back reads:

Pisces, February 19 – March 20
Jupiter – Planet
Water – Element
Virgo – Complement
Generous, Sensitive and kind, You are an imaginative person
- i.e., Elizabeth Taylor, Caruso & Jackie Gleason,
Gem – Aquamarine
Flower – Jonquil
Color – Azure
Numbers – 9, 12, 33

What’s kitchen item have you broken that made you the saddest? What’s its story?

    Hmmm … I don’t think I could ever replace the Pisces mug, but the dish … ahh, I see a quest in my future.
