In my bevy of Christmas loot, this is the item that I’ve used the most since being home for two days. The General has caught me eying one just like this at Target for approximately 2098 days. You can read more about my bitchin’ Smart Planet EC-10 Double Wall Plastic Cold Drink Cup With Reusable Straw at Amazon and I highly recommend getting one. For real.
I’m always in desperate need of something to encourage me to drink water during the day. Water bottles last for a few days until I forget to empty it out and then the water goes stale and smells like someone bathed in it. And then if I try to use a cup, the water gets too warm because I don’t use ice because it hurts my teeth when it cracks up against it. High maintenance water drinker? That is totally me and I’m not afraid to admit it.
Now I have this little bad boy that holds 16 ounces of water. It keeps water cold and I don’t have to worry about the outside of the cup getting all sweaty and dripping cup sweat onto the stack of papers I have on my desk that I need to go through. The lid screws on instead of snaps on, so it’s harder to spill all over myself (and my desk) and it comes with a reusable straw. I’m not sure how sanitary that straw is going to be, but I’ll live with that.
Extra bonus: The material that the cup is made from also doesn’t have BPA in it at all. BPA is some bad shit, y’all.
Extra extra bonus: I’ve already drank 32 ounces of water and it’s only 10am. The multiple trips to the bathroom may be bad on my productivity, but it’s sure as heck going to stop my obsessive habits of digging up 60 cents to get pops out of the pop machine all day long.
