I rarely reblog things like this, but…. My roommate looked at me sideways once when I pulled out a Ball canning jar & put some lemonade in it. ”What are you doing?!” ”Having a drink, why?” The jar confused him. My default answer is always, “I’m from Oklahoma. It’s what we do.” While I know this isn’t an Oklahoma thing, to most New York’ers, it’s a perfectly acceptable reason.
They actually make lids for jars so you don’t spill them, and they also (jokingly, but usable) make them as stemware.
