From the horse's mouth.

 Me: Ugh, I can't reach the chocolate syrup at the bottom of this cup with any of our regular spoons. I need a tea spoon.

Martin: You mean an "iced tea" spoon.

Me: Yeah, well, when I was growing up that was the only thing that existed, everyone knew what you meant. I need one of those, a tea spoon.

Martin: Yeah, well you can just forget about that right now. Because there's no drink that cold or that tall in Poland.

Me: What are you talking about?

Martin: All the cups are small and there's no ice.

Me: You're so right! Why is there no ice anywhere in that country?!?!?!

Martin: Because the weather *is* the ice. Everything they've told you is true! It's cold all the time! You don't *want* to drink anything tall and cold, because it's always cold and rainy and dreary outside! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I think Poland is exactly like michigan. True story!

  2. You better get yo self some good lamps, gurl.

  3. Heat lamps and big cups. It'll be the little things that break me in the end.

  4. Don't worry about it. It's not true anymore. You can buy ice at the corner store and Polish people like their mojitoes tall and cold.

  5. HAHAHA! Yes, there is ice there. I think the difference is that here, every drink you buy comes with ice in it (like restaurant or fast food) and every drink you buy comes in a huge cup. Martin says this is a Texas thing more than anything else. I think he's right. And I've never had a Mojito in Poland. Guess I'll have to test that one out ASAP, you know, for research.

  6. Yes, yes...I too have had many a "research" mojito and even a few "medicinal" shots.

    And you and your husband are right about the restaurant thing. We had dinner out last night and all drinks were served in small tumblers without ice...they were even a bit warm. Yuck.
