Bubba's Special Drink

"Mama," my eleven year old son said. "I made you a special drink. Come in the kitchen to get it."

I couldn't wait to see what this was about.

I walked in and found a cup filled with water. But it was upside down. I'm not kidding. The opening was against the counter.

I looked at my boy. "Bubba, are you kidding?"

At this point, he was laughing hysterically.  "You have to drink it, Mama!"

"Dude, there's no way I can pick it up without spilling the water."

So, the cup is sitting on my counter, while I figure out how to deal with this special drink.

(In case you are wondering, Bubba did the old magic card trick. He covered the cup with the card, flipped the cup over, and removed the card. Pretty good trick!)

    1. It was an easy clean up. I simply slid the cup to the sink, and let the water spill into it.

  9. If it was a paper cup, poke a hole in the bottom, insert straw, and drink.

    If not? Yeah, your way is best.

  14. Sneaky Bubba! He better not become a bartender when he's older. I don't think most people would appreciate a "special drink" like that... XD

  15. I once played a prank on a friend where I filled two containers with water and asked him whether he could balance them on the back of his hands. Once they were both in place, I walked away.
