Paper or ... glass?

I offered a glass of water to my sister-in-law last night. And like any normal person, I asked if she wanted it in a plastic or glass? She looked at me a little funny.
I am one of those people. I cannot, or will not, drink water out of glass unless I have to. And if I drink milk, it needs to be in glass, never, never in plastic. It's just wrong. Makes it taste funny. Now pop - that should be in plastic, but I can handle it in glass if it is ice cold. What about you?


  1. this just made my day because my self-crazy level feels slightly validated. Now, while I can't say I have issues with plastic and glass, I do have this drinking-issue. I cannot, and will not, drink cold drinks in coffee mugs. I swear it makes it taste different and well, gross. Everyone has always rolled their eyes at me but I can't imagine what they would say if I pulled the plastic vs. glass. I'm glad to know I'm not the only picky drinker out there.

  2. I'm a total iced tea girl. Drink it by the gallons - Tazo Zen mixed - with Tazo Awake - well, when I'm allowed to drink! :)

    It TOTALLY matters what glass. My fave is a plastic green 24 oz cup. It fits TONS of ice (which is very important to me) and it doesn't condense as much - I swear! - as other glasses. Plus, well, I love lime green - what a great color! I just don't like my tea so much in a glass cup (is that how you say it?!).

    Don't drink milk or soda, so not sure on those. But give me my plastic cup for my iced tea any day!

  3. What an interesting question!! Hmmm. I'm not very picky. Usually whatever cup happens to be clean and available. And if there's none, hubs & I have no reservations about sipping straight from the container. (We might have to curb that before we have kids!!) I will say, however, that iced tea almost ALWAYS goes in a plastic cup. Like Dina said, with LOTS of ice. Ice changes the taste of iced tea in a good way! The deciding factor on if I use a coffee cup for something is if I don't want a lot of drink. I don't know why, but I feel like I'm "wasting" a cup (more cup to wash, I reckon) if I don't fill it. So coffee cups get used for milk & OJ often during breakfast. We humans are strange little creatures, aren't we?
