These little glasses looked so lonely when Mom spotted them at a flea market long ago. What was she to do? Why, take them home of course! After all, who could resist these charming little glasses, all done up in red and white checks with ric rac trim? Now "the ric rac glasses" have a special place on the small red cart that sits beside the dining room table.
Where they stay… until a day like today.
We Long ladies have this funny little tradition. You see, Cherry Coke tastes especially good in one of these little ric rac glasses. So, sometimes in the afternoon or evening, the ric rac glasses come off the red cart.
Then comes the fun part– we sit and sip our soda from the little glasses and just talk. Sometimes we laugh (well, most of the time), and sometimes we cry. Sometimes we just sit together, the five of us, making memories that will last forever.
Maybe when Mom and Dad are empty-nesters (Lord willing), we girls will come home… just to sit and sip soda out of Mom's ric rac glasses.
