Dunno if this is just me and numerous other people I have noticed or if its a more general trend with some broader lessons to be learned - let me know what you think.
When I was a teenager and a young man, it would irk me beyond conception that my parents cupboards were so full of small drinking glasses and me and my brothers would always be vying for the one or two pint sized glasses to drink water from. When I have my own place, I’d think, “I will ONLY have pint glasses. What’s the point of these miniature things? Who ever wants to drink 150mls of something?” And indeed in my 20s I very much lived up to this ambition.
As the years have meandered by however I have found the ratio to swing heavily back in the other direction, and I am now content with a small glass of water when my thirst comes. I even prefer to drink beer by decanting small amounts at a time, it tastes fresher dunnit?
Is this a wider trend? If so, why? Is it cos young people spend more time sitting around doing nothing so need a larger volume of water by their side so they don’t have to continually get up and refill? Do they just generally need more hydration? Am I making this all up?
*I stipulate men as this is what I have noticed but I may of course be sexistly wrong.
