My Glass Menagerie

I like to have a glass of water next to my bed when I sleep at night. Apparently, I like to have multiple glasses of water next to the bed. I tend to bring a glass to bed with me, but when I wake up in the morning I don’t take it away. I just leave it there. And they build up. Some may call it lazy. I like to think of it as conservation of water.

I have an internal rule, though. I don’t drink out of any of the old glasses. Unless I am super thirsty and its the glass from the night before. Then I figure its usually okay. On any given day, there are probably four or five (or more) cups and glasses next to my side of the bed. When I run out of space, I will swap one dirty glass for my new one at night. And I will put that dirty glass on the side table by the bedroom door. It usually stays there a couple days. This behavior drives Brad Pitt nuts* but I just tell him “its my glass menagerie” and I figure I am good to go.


*I am most certain my mother is freaking out as she reads this right now.
