Once upon a time, two fairly simple people got married, intending to live out in the country, which they did.
One of their wedding gifts, given to them by one of the husband’s sisters, was a glass cocktail shaker with a silver top and four tiny cut-glass cups.
The wife put the shaker in a cabinet and forgot about it, and used the cups to hold small amounts of ingredients for cooking or small amounts of sauces for dipping or tiny bouquets of wildflowers gathered by the couple’s children.
So, thirty years passed.
One day, the husband said, “The juice I mix in this plastic pitcher always settles. What I need is a pitcher I can shake.”
Don’t you just love a happy ending?
