Mug’s Game

I was in the kitchen this morning and I asked Tinson2 if he could hand me a plate.

He went to the cupboard and returned. “All the big plates are in the dishwasher,” he said. “There are only these tiny plates,” he continued, holding one out to show me.

The above conversation illustrates how clearly the mug has replaced the cup in the modern kitchen.

My fifteen-year old son doesn’t know what a saucer is.

    I’m sure he has other technical vocab to replace it with, though.

    Tiny plates. Sweet. I can’t see you both reduced to eating teeny helpings off them, with cake forks. And drinking from liquer glasses, like in a strange dolly’s tea party.
