Whenever my mom sets up for a party, she always leaves a Sharpie marker next to a stack of plastic cups and the ice bucket. “This way, people can write their names on their cups,” she’d tell me when I was a kid, as if I hadn’t seen her do it a million times. Or as if she didn’t make me and my brother put our names on our cups even when we weren’t entertaining.
I used to hate it! Mostly because I thought it looked kinda cheesy. (But also because my handwriting was terrible and it almost always looked like I was drinking out of Hisa’s cup. What? Fancy Ls are hard!)
Now I totally understand the need for a drink marker system, but I’ve found a better way.
